Police say thieves must've used heavy equipment to make off with a 4-ton statue mounted outside a Utah motorcycle shop.

Lindon Police Chief Cody Cullimore says a back-hoe or a crane likely was required to move the $100,000 sculpture depicting an old-time speed racer, according to The Salt Lake Tribune newspaper.

Employees discovered it was missing from the Timpanogos Harley-Davidson store in Lindon, where it had been erected two years ago.

Store manager Kandi Zamora says the granite block on which it was mounted also was missing.
