Life-Size Obama Statue Stolen; Found with a Six-Pack and Some Smokes

A few years ago, Bear Creek, Penn. resident Tiffany Bruce paid exactly $1,249 for a statue of Barack Obama, sitting like Ronald McDonald, and placed it on her porch. It was the neighborhood’s pride and joy — until earlier this week, when it was stolen.

“I peeked my head out the door and Obama’s gone and I kind of went into a panic. I couldn’t breathe, and I had to go to the hospital,” Bruce told WNEP.

Luckily for her, her precious Obama wasn’t used for political art or vandalism, but rather had gone out to get a six-pack of Twisted Tea and some cigarettes. It was found chilling at the Francis E. Walter Dam, doing some daydrinking.

Bruce is happy that Obama wasn’t hurt, but admitted she had some trepidations about getting him some companionship: “I was going to get a Hillary too, but I don’t want to do it now.”
