Stolen angel statue recovered by police

Bridgeport police say they have recovered a 60-pound stone angel statue stolen from a memorial in Beardsley Park last week. 



The stone statue was taken from a playground in the park called "Aaron's Journey." 



The playground is accessible for all kids, and is named after 9-year-old Aaron "AJ" Richardson, who died in 2008.



Aaron's mother says she is grateful to have the statue back and will be returning it to its original location.
