An 18-foot totem pole stolen from a West Seattle park early last week has been found in Oregon.
A 69-year-old West Seattle man, who was arrested Wednesday night in connection with the theft, led investigators to the pole, in Keizer, Ore., just outside of Salem.
The suspect apparently had a crew with a crane help remove the pole, but it's not clear if the workers knew the man did not have permission to take the local landmark, police said.
"The Rotarians were up in arms," said Rotary President Amy Lee Derenthal. "Some of our members were very passionate about our totem pole."
The pole, which features a large bird with spread wings near the top, is considered a symbol of the West Seattle Rotary Club and is featured on its marketing material and shirts.
