"It’ll take several employees trying to pick it up and put it back," said Matt Stoffel, city of Findlay public works superintendent. "We don’t have a lot of experience in mounting these things, because we don’t normally do that. It’ll take time and a lot of people to put it all back together.

Police are asking anyone with information to call their office at (419) 424-7150 or Crime Stoppers at (419) 425-8477.
