ROLLING HILLS ESTATES, Calif. (AP) - Thieves have made off with a statue of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer that’s been a holiday fixture in a Los Angeles-area neighborhood for half a century.

Residents of Rolling Hills Estates say the 200-pound wooden statue was taken sometime Friday night.

The culprits left Rudolph’s broken antler behind.

Resident Tim Taylor, whose family has taken care of the handmade statue for several years, says he’s hoping it’s just a prank and that Rudolph will be returned.

KCBS-TV reports (https://cbsloc.al/1BJCFEs ) that missing posters have been distributed and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has taken a police report.
