Police cite two suspects in theft of life-size cutout of Mahomes, subsequent crash

The life-size cutout of Patrick Mahomes is back at the McDonald's from which it allegedly was taken.

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Two suspects are being penalized after they allegedly stole a life-size cutout of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, then crashed their getaway car.

Lawrence police spokesman Patrick Compton says a man and woman grabbed the cutout at a McDonald’s restaurant Monday, ran out the door, then jumped into a car and sped away.

Officers investigating a nearby two-car accident saw the cutout in one of the vehicles. Compton said the vehicle also matched the description of the car that drove away from the McDonald’s.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the two were issued notices to appear for theft and were cited in the accident. One person was treated for minor injuries.

The cutout of the popular Chiefs quarterback wasn’t damaged and is back on display at the McDonald’s.
