Hot air balloon stolen from Boston Chicken

February 24, 1994

Whether it was done for profit or as a malicious prank, the thief who stole the 30-foot-tall hot air balloon from the Boston Chicken restaurant in the 7900 block of Ritchie Highway will never be accused of a lack of ambition.

The theft happened sometime between 5 p.m. Sunday and noon Monday, police said. The white balloon displayed the restaurant's logo and had hovered over the restaurant since its opening.

Police said the balloon is worth $1,200. There are no suspects, they said.
