Finally, some good news. Kansas City Police tweeted Monday that they had recovered the giant inflatable colon that was stolen, although no one is in custody yet.
BREAKING: WE HAVE RECOVERED THE STOLEN COLON. Thanks to a tip, officers found the giant, inflatable, pilfered intestine in a vacant house in the 7100 block of Virginia. No one in custody yet. Investigation is continuing. #stolencolon pic.twitter.com/QAILIr3G6d

Staff from the University of Kansas Cancer Center use the giant colon as an educational tool for medical center and other community events. In even more good news, Quest Diagnostics and the employees at Salix Pharmaceuticals raised enough money to allow the Colon Cancer Coalition to purchase two new colons.
Another bright side: all of the #stolencolon tweets and jokes actually did bring awareness to colon cancer, so it’s a win-win.
I can't imagine having a criminal record for stealing a giant colon.

Based on the picture, this is only a semi-colon.

They followed a hunch they didn't think had good chances of panning out. They found the crap chute with a crap shoot.

I'm surprised that whoever lost the colon had the guts to report it.
