Was it stolen? … Or liberated?
A large bronze statue of a Native American on a horse gripping an eagle was taken from a woman’s front yard in Arnold, Missouri, early Monday, according to police.
Witnesses said the statue, valued at $6,500, was loaded onto the bed of a white truck and hauled away around 2:10 a.m., reported NBC St. Louis news affiliate KSDK.
“It’s a very valuable statue. It’s bronze, life size, extremely heavy. How they got away with that one, I don’t know,” said Charlene Stephens, the owner of the statue.
Stephens, who has more statues in her backyard, lives next to a government center, which has surveillance cameras. Stephens said she hopes one of the cameras caught footage of the theft.
No suspects have been identified and a license plate number was not reported.
