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 cutout letters.

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