Burlington police investigating statue of burqa-clad woman holding rifle
City police are investigating how a statue of what appeared to be a woman in a burqa and holding a rifle ended up in the bushes next to a gas station on Route 130.
In a statement posted to their Facebook page this weekend, police said they were alerted to the statue's presence by a city resident who found out about it after seeing a video on social media.
A report from the Burlington County Times described the statue as appearing to be that of a woman dressed in a burqa, the outer garment worn by some Muslim women, and holding an assault rifle. Police said the rifle was painted on the statue.
