I was waiting by my parents Volvo while my two friends tackled the statue down off of its pedestal. It was actually anchored to both the pedestal and the ground beneath said pedestal by two massive steel cables. Good thing we had brought a hammer and chisel (never know when youll need them). I still remember the sound of my friends swift chisel blow to each of those two cables, and the laughter that pierced the damp evening as they sprinted towards my Volvo with it. We stole two other Ronald statues one of them was ceremoniously filled with kerosene, set aflame, and dropped 300 feet off of a bridge.
Horrifying. Wed like to encourage anyone with information about the stolen Ronald to come forward. Well reward you with our favorite Mickey Ds creation a McGriddle breakfast sandwich.

Update: Gothamist hears from the owner of the statue and it turns out it was taken from the trash, not stolen.
