Associated Press Release
BALL GROUND, Ga. (AP) -- Police in the north Georgia town of Ball Ground are offering $1,000 reward for the arrest of whoever stole a scarecrow portraying Uncle Si Robertson from TV's "Duck Dynasty."
The scarecrow, which features the popular character from the reality show wearing camouflage and sitting on a hay bale with his legs crossed, went missing between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
City Clerk Karen Jordan tells the Cherokee Tribune (http://bit.ly/1c9EO3l) that the scarecrow was a favorite in the city's inaugural scarecrow contest.
Four moms of fourth-graders at Ball Ground Elementary School spent more than 40 hours to make the scarecrow. One of them, Allison Martin, said she couldn't believe someone in such a close community would swipe their children's favorite character.
Ball Ground is about 50 miles north of Atlanta.
