Pig in a blanket

Two men in Southern California have pleaded not guilty to grand theft and other charges after being arrested for stealing a bronze statue of a pig from in front of a restaurant.

Police say the men, Oren Hertz and Armando Cesena, were identified from security video taken from a nearby ATM. The video showed a pickup truck ramming the pig, then two men removing it from its base, throwing it in the bed of the pickup and driving away.

Later, an anonymous caller said the pig had been dropped off at the Chula Vista Library and that the theft was a prank. The three-foot-long sculpture, worth an estimated $15,000, was found wrapped in a blanket.
