SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

In the Benton Park neighborhood, iron chickens are a hot commodity.

A viewer watching Monday’s News 4 at 5:00 broadcast saw that officials were looking for someone in connection to stealing a iron rooster. In this new case, Mark Widmann reached out to News 4 to say that thieves were successful in carrying out their heist.

According to the owner of the "Bluffs on Broadway", the thieves had to scale a fence to gain entry onto his property. There were a total of five roosters. But as of a few weeks ago -- only two remain.

Now, Widmann says that he plans to replace the roosters as soon as temps warm up and crews can cement them into the ground.
