According to WNEP-TV, the roughly $1,200 statue was stolen earlier this week off the porch of a Pennsylvania woman’s home. The owner, Tiffany Bruce, panicked.

“I couldn’t breathe and I had to go to the hospital,” she told WNEP.

However, the statue was ultimately discovered later this week at a nearby creek.

Photos show the statue sitting on a park bench next to an empty pack of Twisted Tea bottles. The Obama replica even had a cigarette placed in his mouth.

It was unclear how the statue ended up at the creek or who was responsible.
