I think it was on Wednesday my husband was downtown and said there was some sort of to-do by the downtown MacDonalds. All he could see was a lot of emergency personnel, so don't know what was up.
The Victoria crime thread
Posted 14 April 2018 - 09:56 AM
Members of a new Victoria artists’ collective are reeling after the best pieces on display, small statues worth about $8,000, went missing in a smash-and-grab burglary.
“It’s a real punch in the face to have this kind of stuff happen,” Kit Warren, a director of 1620 Gallery, said Friday.
Stolen in Thursday’s break-in were two duplicate statues both depicting a mother and child.
One is carved in stone and valued at about $5,000 and its duplicate was cast in bronze and valued at about $3,000.
Warren has filed a police report. He and others are also putting up posters at pawnshops and second-hand stores, hoping to recover the pieces.
He said he and others at the gallery recognize the area is not the safest in town.
It's too bad the crappy part of town is acknowledged as 1.5 blocks from the police station.
