Police find otter's owner

PORTLAND, Ore. - Police found the owner of a bronze sea otter sculpture that was recovered during a burglary investigation.

Police said tips from the public led them to the owner, Mark Kooy. Investigators had an incorrect spelling of Kooy's name, which they said made him difficult to track down.

The otter was stolen during a burglary at Kooy's business in May, 2011, police said. No arrests have been made in the theft.

Police are making arrangements to return the sculpture to Kooy.

The bronze sea otter is identical to one located at the Oregon Zoo.
