During the evening of Feb. 19, two wood carved statues were taken from the side yard of a residence in the 400 Block of Fairview Terrace. The owner had moved the statues earlier that day to a visible position on the front lawn as she performed work on them. The statues had been on her property for several years and the owner found it suspicious that shortly after having them temporarily visible on the front lawn, they were stolen. The victim told police that she recalled seeing workers in the neighborhood earlier that day.
