Missing Maui puppets found

Three puppets stolen from a Maui performing arts organization’s van have been found.

David Johnston of the Maui Academy of Performing Arts says Maui police located the puppets on Monday.

The cloth-covered foam puppets, worth $10,000, were missing for a week and two days.

Academy officials had to scramble to use other puppets for an ongoing children’s production of “The Further Adventures of Tiki Tiki Tembo.”

Johnston says the puppets were returned in good condition.

The academy is waiting for details from police about how the puppets were found.

Now that the puppets are home they are being reworked into the show.
