Tony the Tiger has found his way home thanks to an alert citizen. We're not talking about the cereal mascot, but a hot air balloon.

You can see it in this picture, near the center of the picture. Someone stole a trailer carrying Tony, another balloon and ballooning equipment Monday from a Tulsa hotel parking lot.

A concerned citizen saw the trailer in their neighborhood and didn't think it belonged, and they were right. They called police, who showed up and recovered the trailer.

Its contents were valued at more than $200,000. Officers believe they know who's responsible.
