Roaming gnome comes home

SAUGUS, Mass. (AP) - August 4, 2011

Her 300-pound front-yard gnome disappeared last week.

It had been her lawn ornament for 18 years.

But the gnome is back in front of her Saugus, Massachusetts, house.

She had posted a sign in her yard asking for its return, no questions asked.

Walton says she plans to cement her gnome into the lawn, along with a giant mushroom that also went missing.

She says that way they'll be even harder to steal.
