Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada say bronze statue was stolen from headquarters
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - The Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada said a bronze statue was stolen from outside their headquarters over the weekend.
“We are teaching our girls about being kind and considerate and making the world a better place. And then here we have people stealing our sculpture, “said Girl Scouts of America CEO Kimberly Trueba.
The group said around 2:45 a.m. Saturday morning, surveillance footage shows two men driving up in a black or blue sedan, and then driving off with the trunk open and the statue in the trunk.
Officials with the Girls Scouts of Southern Nevada said the statue has been at its headquarters since 2003 when the building was completed.
“It’s named In Grace. And we’re reminding our girls to live their life with grace. And to handle difficult moments and controversy with grace. And to stand up and have a voice. And for something like this to happen right there in our front yard is sad,” said Trueba.
She said the statue cost $28,000 and believes someone could only get around $500 if the bronze was melted down. It is hollow inside and that’s how the thieves were able to carry it away.
Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada said they hope someone can help them recover the statue before it is destroyed or sold.
