Stolen Riverfront Park sculptures found in plastic bag

Stolen Riverfront Park sculptures found in plastic bag


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Thousands of dollars worth of sculptures that were stolen from Riverfront Park's sculpture garden have been recovered.

Park visitors discovered them Sunday morning, seemingly returned in a plastic bag. The three pieces stolen were made of bronze with copper detail and were worth close to $30,000.

While the city's Department of Parks and Recreation said a theft like this has not happened in years, this most recent incident has spurred the city to add surveillance cameras and cut down some vegetation.

"We only had one surveillance camera in the garden," said Truman Tolfree, director of Parks and Recreation. "Because of the incident we're adding more signs, we're adding additional lights and trimming the tress to clear the view in the park."

The city is tightening on security to make sure residents like Joy George feel safe.
