Bettendorf Police are asking residents to be on the lookout for a bear. Not the living breathing kind, but a wooden bear apparently stolen from a local restaurant.

According to the Bettendorf Police Department's Facebook page, the couple shown in the photo were dining at a Bettendorf restaurant. As they were leaving the male subject stole a carved wooden bear, similar to the one pictured, from the restaurant.
