Garden Gnomes Gather in Shadowy Operation
Updated: Thu, Jul 12 6:15 AM EDT

STRASBOURG, France (Reuters) – More than 100 garden gnomes and other gaudy statues were discovered on Wednesday assembled on a traffic circle in eastern France, a police spokesman said.

Some of the statues were set up to spell out “Free the Gnomes.” No one claimed immediate responsibility for the stunt, but police said it bore all the hallmarks of the shadowy Garden Gnome Liberation Front.

The kitschy little creatures were reported stolen from numerous gardens around the town of Chavelot overnight and subsequently gathered together on the roundabout.

“It was a bit like a giant creche. Everything had been carefully set up,” a police spokesman said.

The Gnome Liberation Front rose to prominence in the mid-1990s following a series of raids on gardens to “free” gnomes and “return them to the wild.”
