Police recover head of big Red Wings bobblehead

Posted: Updated:

Detroit police say they've recovered the stolen head belonging to a big bobblehead of Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard.

The head of the roughly 5-foot-tall statue was reported missing around 5 a.m. Thursday from downtown's Campus Martius park. Police Chief James Craig told reporters a suspect was arrested by midmorning and the head was "safely in our custody."

Other suspects are being sought.

Police say a group was seen taking the head. Investigators planned to review surveillance footage.

Meanwhile, The Detroit News reports the head from a bobblehead of center Pavel Datsyuk was taken last week.

The bobbleheads were part of a marketing campaign. Greg Hammaren, general manager for Fox Sports Detroit, says they were to be auctioned to support the Boys & Girls Club of America after being displayed.
