'Cookie Monster' sends 2nd note in sculpture theft

      BERLIN (AP) Police in Germany say someone dressed as the Cookie Monster has sent a second note regarding a stolen cookie sculpture this time saying he wants to return it.

      But officials aren't sure the person in the photo actually stole the 20-kilogram (44 pound), century-old sculpture.

      The gilded bronze item was part of a statue outside German cookie baker Bahlsen's Hannover office, and it was reported stolen last month.

      The Hannover police's statement says a local newspaper on Monday received a picture of someone dressed like the Sesame Street character holding what appears to be the stolen cookie.

      The enclosed note is written in cut-out letters.

      An earlier letter demanded that cookies be delivered to children at a city hospital, but the new note made no demands.
