I should probably apologize to Hooseir college students. After a Big Boy statue went missing in Mishawaka, I suggested police should just start looking in dorm rooms. The Boy is back now, and it turns out that the kidnappers were townies:
According to Jim Isza Jr., two young men, both in their late teens, arrived at the shop with the Big Boy in the back of a pickup truck.
The men told Isza they saw the Big Boy at the shop and assumed it was trash. They apologized for the misunderstanding and asked for help unloading him from the tailgate.
"We didn't press charges or anything," Isza said. "We were kind of rough on them and they were shaking pretty good, so we just let it go."
Assumed it was trash. Uh-huh, yeah, right. Good one.
