Huge Statue Of  #8 Swiped From Camden Yards

From The Baltimore Sun:

The full-sized statue of Cal Ripken Jr.’s No. 8 in front of the Camden Yards baseball stadium was stolen overnight, and Baltimore police said they have arrested four males in the case.

City police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the statue has been recovered, though many details, including whether it was damaged, were not immediately available. Names of the suspects and additional information about how the theft was pulled off are to be released later today.

The incident was captured on surveillance video, according to police.

Guglielmi said the men got away in a pickup truck. They are not Baltimore residents, the spokesman said.

Any guesses where these goofballs are from?
