A giant spoon worth thousands of dollars is back where it belongs in Phoenix, after three people apparently stole it for days.
The spoon is 15 feet tall and normally hangs outside a Dairy Queen restaurant. Security camera video indicates it vanished before dawn March 25, when two men and a woman lifted it onto a long flatbed trailer attached to a pickup truck.
The restaurant owners offered free Blizzard treats to the person who found the spoon. That reward may go to Michael Foster, who discovered it on the ground Monday while playing Pokémon Go.
Foster, 53, told the Associated Press he sent a photo of the giant spoon to his wife. It rested on the other side of a fence from a middle school baseball field.
Phoenix Police picked up the spoon, strapped it to the top of a cruiser and returned it to the restaurant.
