When a gold statue is stolen from a home
Posted On July 23, 2021
A black gold statue from a Los Angeles home has been stolen by thieves who broke into the home last week and took it to a local gold-mining facility, police said.
The statue, made of gold and silver, was taken from a house in the 1400 block of S.E. Broadway on Friday by three men, who stole it, said Sgt. Scott Ritchie of the Los Angeles Police Department.
They broke into a home in the 900 block of South Green Street and took the statue, which was valued at about $100,000, Ritchie said.
The statue was later returned to the house, and no one was injured, he said.
It is unclear what the stolen statue is worth.
Anyone with information is asked to call the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department’s Robbery Detail at (323) 782-9200 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
