Two velociraptor ornaments taken from the New Philadelphia Garden Center

New Philadelphia: If you see a nine-foot-tall dinosaur that doesn’t look like a place, the local garden center and the police want to know about it.

Two decorative velociraptors from Stutzman’s Lawn & Landscaping, 1138 Commercial Ave. SE stolen.

The first, Penelope, was reported stolen on July 23. Her husband, Pierre, was reportedly abducted on Wednesday. One day, he was seen lifting his head five feet above the ground.

“They have been here for at least five to six years,” says Anadele France, manager of the Garden Center. When we first brought them, they were for sale. They never sold. So, like something new, we put them next to the pond. The children really liked to see them in the koi pond.
