A 24-year-old man has turned himself in after stealing the 'M' from McDonalds in Blenheim early on Sunday morning, police say.
Constable Andrew Holdaway, of Blenheim, said the builder told police he thought it would look good on his wall.
He went to the Blenheim Police Station about 5.30pm yesterday, where he was arrested, after the publicity the theft had received on The Marlborough Express and Marlborough Police Facebook pages over the past two days.
The man dumped it in the Marlborough Boys' College area, but it had not yet been recovered, Mr Holdaway said.
He will appear in the Blenheim District Court on Tuesday.
