KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KSNW) – Kansas City, Missouri police say they have recovered a giant, inflatable colon used to teach about the dangers of colon cancer.
Police said in a tweet Monday afternoon that a tip led to the colon being found in a vacant home in the 7100 block of Virginia Avenue. No arrests have been made.
The University of Kansas Cancer Center said the large inflatable colon was stolen from a pickup bed in Brookside in Kansas City, Missouri on Oct. 18. It is used mainly as a teaching tool to inform patients about colon cancer and the need for a colonoscopy, usually by the age 50. It is 10 feet long, weighs 150 pounds and is valued at $4,000.
