Golden cookie stolen, suspects include a Sesame Street character
A Berlin bakery had its golden cookie stolen. The golden cookie stolen was part of a 100-year-old sculpture on the bakery's facade. The police have a lead, a photo with someone holding a golden cookie while dressed as Sesame Street's Cookie Monster.
Missing: One¬†golden¬†cookie, weighing around 44 pounds (20 kilograms).
The rectangular gilded bronze sculpture was part of a statue gracing the facade of German¬†cookie¬†baker Bahlsen's Hannover office.
How the century-old symbol was taken remains unclear, but police say witnesses reported having seen two men with a ladder in the area earlier this month.
The company has offered ‚ā¨1,000 ($1,350) for information leading to the¬†cookie's¬†recovery.
A police statement said a local newspaper received a picture Tuesday showing someone in an outfit similar to Sesame Street's Cookie¬†Monster holding a¬†golden¬†cookie.
The sender wrote to demand¬†cookies¬†be delivered to children at a city hospital.
Police aren't sure if it's the same¬†cookie, or a real claim of responsibility.
