Frances McDormand's Oscar statue has been returned after it was stolen during the Governors Ball after the award's ceremony.

Terry Bryant, 47, allegedly stole the statue before being caught a few minutes later by Wolfgang Puck's photographer, People magazine reported. Initially, McDormand told the photographer to let Bryant go after the statue was recovered, People reported, but Bryant was then arrested by security personnel on suspicion of felony theft.

LAPD reported that Bryant's bail was set at $20,000, Variety reported. Bryant had a ticket to be at the event.

McDormand's rep, Simon Halls, told Variety that she had the statue back.

"After a brief time apart, Frances and her Oscar were happily reunited last night," Halls told Variety via email. "They celebrated their reunion with a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out."

The 60-year-old actress won the best actress Oscar for her performance in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri." McDormand also won the Golden Globe for best Actress in a Drama. She previously won the best actress Oscar for "Fargo" in 1997 and for best supporting actress in 1989 for "Mississippi Burning." She was also nominated in 2001 for "Almost Famous" and in 2006 for "North Country."
