"Some 79 garden gnomes snatched by a so-called gnome liberation group, were discovered Wednesday along the banks of a stream in the central Limousin region, police said."
"The gnomes were hidden in some underbrush with a banner that read, "gnome mistreated, gnome liberated", police said."
"Last month 86 gnomes were found in the yard of a Limoges high school. Others, stolen last summer, were discovered along the edge of a swimming pool on the outskirts of the city."
