City police are investigating how a statue of what appeared to be a woman in a burqa and holding a rifle ended up in the bushes next to a gas station on Route 130.

In a statement posted to their Facebook page this weekend, police said they were alerted to the statue's presence by a city resident who found out about it after seeing a video on social media.
