Police searching for missing razorback statue

TEXARKANA (AP) - Authorities in Texarkana are searching for a 300-pound, cast-iron statue of a razorback that was swiped from a couple's fenced backyard.

Charla and Stephen Harris reported the missing hog statue Saturday. Charla Harris tells the Texarkana Gazette that it took four people to drag the statue into the backyard when the Harrises purchased it. So she suspects several people are involved in the theft.

Harris says she and her husband bought the statue from an antiques dealer because they're both big University of Arkansas fans.

A smaller, lightweight statue was swiped from the couple's front yard a few years ago. Charla Harris says it eventually turned up in a ditch in Genoa.

Anyone with information is asked to call Texarkana police.
