CRIME: THEFT OF CARVINGS
DATE: December 19, 2012
RCMP FILE: 2012-69586
A store in the Spall Plaza was targeted by a thief during the busy Christmas shopping season. Bones and Stones Décor owners noticed on several occasions that items had disappeared from the store but they were not able to catch the suspect. On December 24th a man was caught on recently purchased surveillance equipment then arrested on December 26th. Although investigators believe he was the same culprit who stole these carvings, they are not able to prove it. Police are looking for information on these and other stolen rare stone carvings. The pink stone is Rhodochrosite and is valued at $4500. A pair of blue calcite horse heads valued at $650 were taken, as well as a blue calcite turtle sculpture valued at $1000.
