BOYNTON BEACH, FL ( —  Boynton Beach police Sunday launched an investigation into a stolen bionic arm belonging to motivational speaker Chris Ruden. The arm was stolen from his truck parked outside his girlfriend’s home in Boynton Beach. Incredibly, just hours later, police located the arm and returned it to Ruden.

From Boynton Beach Police:

“A sergeant and two detectives found Chris Ruden’s bionic arm tonight!

Sgt. Rayner De Los Rios and Detectives Marco Villari and Jeff Gleicher spent about a half hour scouring the Stonehaven community where the burglary to Ruden’s truck occurred last night or early this morning.
They found the prosthetic arm in bushes along a perimeter fence.
Crime Scene Investigator Tom McKinlay collected the arm and processed it for investigative purposes.
Ruden came to the police department to pick it up a few minutes ago. He was extremely appreciative of the officers’ efforts.”
Prosthetic, bionic limbs often cost in excess of $40,000.
