World News – Search is on for a stolen golden cookie, weighing around 44 pounds (20 kilograms), from a façade of a German cookie baker Bahlsen’s Hannover office.
The rectangular gilded bronze sculpture was part of a statue gracing the facade of the baker’s office.
How the century-old symbol was taken remains unclear, but police say witnesses reported having seen two men with a ladder in the area earlier this month.
The company has offered (euro) 1,000 ($1,350) for information leading to the cookie’s recovery.
A police statement said a local newspaper received a picture Tuesday showing someone in an outfit similar to Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster holding a golden cookie.
The sender wrote to demand cookies be delivered to children at a city hospital. Police aren’t sure if it’s the same cookie, or a real claim of responsibility. (AP)
