CLEVELAND, May 4 (UPI) -- Officials in a Cleveland neighborhood said a stolen plaque honoring the creators of Superman has been returned undamaged.

Tracey Kirksey, executive director of the Glenville Development Corp., said the plaque honoring Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster was cut off a post three weeks ago and turned up undamaged Monday outside a fire station near the intersection where it was taken, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported Wednesday.

The plaque was erected in 2003 at the intersection of St. Clair Avenue and East 105th Street, near the home where Siegel and Shuster lived when they created Superman in 1938.

Kirksey said the sign is being housed at the Glenville Development Corp. building until it can be returned to its former perch.
