The Athens Banner-Herald reports that a company manager concealed the GPS device inside the bear, placed it in a bag of clothing and tossed it into the collection bin.

Around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, the manager called police to report that the teddy bear was on the move. Police said the manager worked with the officer to update the stuffed animal's location, and a 55-year-old man was stopped and charged with theft by taking, a misdemeanor.
