Robble robble robbed: Missing Ronald McDonald statue found

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) – A Ronald McDonald statue hamburgled from a western Massachusetts home during a teenage house party has been found.

The three-foot high statue of the McDonald’s mascot was turned over to Northampton police Wednesday by a McDonald’s employee who found it next to a trash bin outside a health club.

That person turned it over when he read about the missing statue in The Daily Hampshire Gazette.

Mary Ryan says her husband bought the sculpture of a kneeling Ronald from an antique store years ago for $1,200. They think it dates to 1972.

It disappeared in August when their teenage daughter hosted an unauthorized party at their summer home in Leverett. It was seen in a tree and outside the health club, before the trail went cold. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
