SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The owner of a Utah business that brings roving dinosaurs to birthday parties and other events says he’s happy to have a 9-foot Tyrannosaurus Rex and 8-foot raptor back after they were stolen Tuesday.

Dino Media owner Adam Kelley says he arrived at his West Jordan home Tuesday evening to find the trailer housing the dinosaurs was gone.

Salt Lake Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyle says police found the trailer Wednesday in a Murray warehouse. The dinosaurs were mostly in tact with a few gashes.

Actors climb inside the beasts to move them around. The replicas cost about $7,000 each and come from Hong Kong.

Kelley says he is relieved the dinosaurs showed up before his company’s next scheduled event in March.
