Kansas City Police Recover Giant Inflatable Colon

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Kansas City police say they have recovered a giant inflatable colon stolen earlier this month.

The 10-foot long, 150-pound inflatable was stolen earlier this month from the back of a pickup truck in Kansas City. It is used by the Colon Cancer Coalition for education during walking and running events.

Police says the colon, valued at $4,000, was found Monday in a vacant house in Kansas City.

The department offered no information on how the large display was taken and moved, or why it was at the house.

The investigation is continuing. No one has been arrested.

The inflatable colon is stored at the University of Kansas Cancer Center. Spokesman Bob Hallinan said the center is planning a welcome home celebration for Thursday.
