Police appeal for help locating stolen St Ives sculpture
POLICE are appealing for help to trace a sculpture which was stolen from a gallery in St Ives last week.
The abstract bronze artwork, worth around £3,400, was taken from a display at Porthminster Gallery on August 9.
Police would like to speak to anyone who may have seen the offender carrying the stolen sculpture, entitled Kaimos Creature, in the street between 10am and 11am.
PC Jon Dash, based at Penzance, said: “This sculpture was taken in broad daylight and the person would have had to walk it though the street to waiting transport. They would have had to be fairly strong to carry the sculpture on their own.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting crime reference AI/13/564.
