COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities are looking for vandals who snatched the hat off a storefront statue of the Ohio State University mascot.
Multiple media outlets report Brutus Buckeye wears a band uniform in the statue outside a store selling Ohio State fan gear across the street from the university's Columbus campus. Normally he holds a band hat up high, in his right hand on the statue, but the hat was taken early Sunday. Store surveillance video shows it being removed by three people, including a woman in an Ohio State jersey. The video shows them posing for pictures before leaving.
Police are asking for tips. The store says it may offer a reward.
