The Largo Police Department is investigating the theft of a large, bronze statue that was stolen from Largo Central Park, 323 Central Park Drive, over the weekend. The theft occurred between Friday, November 16, and Sunday, November 18, at 10:21 a.m.
Stolen was a cast bronze statue which depicts two children raising an American flag atop a rock hill. The statue weighs approximately 400 pounds. It is 6 feet high, 5 feet wide and 3.5 feet deep. The value of the bronze statue is approximately $3,300.
The statue had been near the military court of honor within Central Park. It had been anchored to concrete prior to its theft. At this time neither a suspect(s) or motive has been determined. As the statue is rather large, there is hope that someone has knowledge of its whereabouts or who took it.
