FARGO – Do you know where your gnome is right now? If not, you may want to give Fargo police a call.

Police are seeking the rightful homes of 15 garden gnomes that popped up on a north Fargo lawn Tuesday morning.

Lt. Joel Vettel said a homeowner reported finding the figurines in the 2600 block of Lilac Lane.

“Now we have a number of gnomes in our evidence room, and we’d like to find the rightful owners,” he said.

Garden gnomes have become the target of a popular prank that involves stealing a gnome, taking it on a trip and photographing it at landmarks and returning it to its owner with the photos.

People who think their missing gnomes may be among those recovered can call Tammy Lynk at the Fargo Police Department at (701) 241-1422 with a description of their missing gnomes.
