Miami — Police in South Florida say they have a "person of interest" in the theft of a naked Donald Trump statue.

Miami police said on the department's official Twitter account that the statue of the Republican presidential nominee was taken from the Wynwood arts district on Thursday.

WSVN-TV reports security guards in Wynwood told police they saw a group of men loading the statue into a pickup truck.
