BERLIN (February 5, 2013)--German police have recovered a cookie sculpture that may have been stolen by someone impersonating the Cookie Monster.
Spokeswoman Jacobe Heers said the 44-pound gilded sculpture was found Tuesday morning outside a university, hanging from the neck of a horse sculpture with a red ribbon.
The century-old cookie was reported stolen last month from the office of a bakery company in Hannover.
A local newspaper later received a letter demanding cookies be delivered to children at a hospital and a picture of someone dressed as Sesame Street's Cookie Monster holding what appeared to be the stolen cookie.
The Bahlsen company promised a reward of 52,000 packets of cookies for a charitable cause if their sculpture was returned.
No arrests have been made in the cookie caper.
