ST. CLOUD -- A 10-foot long stainless steel crocodile sculpture has been stolen in St. Cloud.

The croc was a part of the St. Cloud Sculpture Walk in downtown. It was last seen on the corner of 8th Avenue South and 1st Street on July 16.

The sculpture had been on the same corner since August of last year. Artist Dale Lewis of Hastings planned to bring the croc home last Saturday but found it had been stolen.
