DAVENPORT, Iowa, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Police in Iowa said a 500-pound bear statue stolen from its usual street corner spot was found in a college dormitory two days later.

Investigators said the 6-foot-tall solid oak bear, which was taken Sunday from the corner of Locust and Clarke streets in Davenport, was found two days later in the dormitory housing St. Ambrose University students, WQAD-TV, Moline, Ill., reported Wednesday.

Police said the students cooperated with requests to return the statue to its owners, who investigators said have not yet decided whether to press charges against the alleged thieves.
