Police say they have recovered a bronze statue stolen from a Topeka church.

The 10-foot bronze statue, called "Forgiven Man," was stolen Oct. 3 from a memorial garden in front of the First Congregational Church. Detectives recovered it Thursday after police received a telephone tip.

Police had said the statue was worth at least $10,000.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports police did not provide any more information on how the statute was found. No arrests have been made and the case is still under investigation.

The church's pastor, Tobias Schlingensiepen, is the Democratic nominee for the 2nd Congressional District seat.
