DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a 12-foot statue missing its head and arms was found in the middle of the road.
The sheriff’s office said deputies were called to a traffic hazard near Hilltop Rd. and Flintwood Rd. in Parker around 2 a.m. Saturday.
“Imagine driving down the road at 2:00 a.m. and find a 12 foot statue missing its head and arms in the middle of the road. That is exactly what our reporting party saw. You never know what you’ll see during Halloween month,” shared the sheriff’s office.
The statue was stolen from a home on Ponderosa Ln. sometime during the night, according the sheriff’s office. The statue was found missing its head and one of its arms.
Here’s what the statue is supposed to look like:
Deputies said the family who owns the statue told the sheriff’s office they paid a lot for it and their 12 and 14-year-old kids are very upset and disappointed that someone took it and removed some of its parts.
“By the way, just so you have an idea how big this statue is, look at the photo of it with Deputy Stahl standing right next to it. Deputy Stahl is smiling now that it is daylight, but we are not sure there were that many smiles when our deputies came across the statue in the middle of the night…without its head,” shared the sheriff’s office.
If you have any information on who may have taken the statue and its parts, please contact the Douglas County non-emergency line at 303-660-7500.
