Fargo aims to replace replica of the Statue of Liberty

FARGO (AP) — Fargo authorities are looking to replace an 8-foot-tall replica of the Statue of Liberty that was stolen last month.
Mayor Tim Mahoney tells KFGO that authorities haven’t had any luck finding the statue and he doesn’t think it will be recovered.
The statue had about 300 pounds of metal that Mahoney thinks could have been chopped up and scrapped. He says the city is focused on finding a replacement.
The statue was presented to the city nearly 70 years ago by the Lions Club.
