Topeka police are looking for a 10-foot-tall bronze statue called "Forgiven Man" after it was stolen from a church.
The statue was stolen early Wednesday from a memorial garden in front of the First Congregational Church. Police say they received a call from a witness who saw two men load the statue into a pickup truck.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports police say the bronze statue is worth $10,000. The thieves also did about $400 damage to a concrete bench and sign at the church.
The church's pastor, Tobias Schlingensiepen, says he believes the statute is worth more than $10,000.
Schlingensiepen is the Democratic nominee for the 2nd Congressional District seat. But he says he's sure the theft had nothing to do with politics.
