14-foot Royals Sign Surfaces After Theft From Billboard

staff - April 30, 2016 6:11 am


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A 14-foot cutout of a Royals player that was stolen from a billboard is safe at home in Kansas City.

Bob Fessler, of Lamar Advertising, says the cutout was found Friday morning in good condition in a weedy area near the billboard that had been searched previously. He says the thieves apparently became nervous and returned it.

The $7,500 cutout weighs 150 pounds and apparently went missing Thursday morning from its perch along Interstate 435. It’s part of an advertisement for grocery store chain Hy-Vee and shows a center-fielder leaping against an image of the outfield wall at Kauffman Stadium, the Royals’ home.

Fessler says a witness who saw the cutout being removed thought company employees were involved.
Jackson County Sheriff’s Sgt. John Payne says no arrests have been made.

They did not get nervous but saw the Royals dream ending with their continuing losing streak.
