The Detroit Red Wings are finally receiving some good news.

Last weekend, the Boston Bruins eliminated the Red Wings in the first round of the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs. If that wasn't bad enough, someone stole the head off the giant bobblehead of goalie Jimmy Howard early Thursday morning.


Here's what the bobblehead normally looks like:

It didn't take long to find the head, however. 

Allen Park Police Chief James Wilkewitz announced that a man in his 20s had been arrested after he admitted to the theft, via The Detroit News' Tony Briscoe.

“We went to that person’s house, and they admitted to the theft, and they told us where the head was,” Wilkewitz said.

Police reportedly found the head under a railroad underpass.

Although one man has been arrested, police are still searching for three more people who are believed to be connected to the crime.
