The theft of a fake sheep with a patriotic flag motif has led to real charges against three teens in San Angelo. Police say the 5-foot-long fiberglass creation was tracked to the apartment of one of the suspects.

A woman reported seeing several men take the Freedom for Me and "Ewe" sheep from behind a building early Sunday. The nearly $3,000 item was recovered hours later.

Individually decorated "Sheep Spectacular" sculptures, promoting art and the region's agriculture, are scattered throughout San Angelo.

The 19-year-old suspects, who posted bond Monday, are charged with felony theft between $1,500 and $20,000. The state jail felony is punishable by 180 days to two years in jail and a fine up to $10,000.
