Someone Yoda Statue Steal

"Mmm. Lost a statue, Master Lucas-Wan has. How embarrassing. How embarrassing. "

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Someone lifted a 170-pound bronze statue of Yoda, the "Star Wars" Jedi master.

The theft from a flatbed truck was reported to police last weekend and artist Lawrence Noble, 55, of Crestline has offered a $1,000 reward for its return. The limited-edition bronze is worth up to $20,000.

"It's a real high-end collectible," Noble said.

Police spokeswoman Janet Pope said, "We are treating this as a burglary and we'd appreciate any information the public might have."

"Hard to see, the dark side is. Clear your mind must be, Pope, if you are to discover the real villains behind this plot. "
