The Eagle has landed

BOERNE — Kendall County deputies have recovered an antique cast iron eagle statue that was stolen in May from outside the Waring Volunteer Fire Department, which adopted the Case farm equipment figure as its mascot in 1978.

A tip led authorities Saturday to the 250-pound eagle that had been disassembled and hidden beneath brush in a field in a nearby county, Kendall County Sheriff's Lt. Shad Prichard said Tuesday.

He said no arrests have been made, but a suspect has been identified in the May 26 theft of one of the two such birds that stood on rock pedestals outside the fire department, which owned them.
