A large sculpture stolen from an Army veteran's home in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, is leading to a big search for the thief caught on camera.
"What makes this case so unique: the owner of the sculpture is an Army Vet with a strong emotional attachment to the item. It represents his time of service to our country, and the statue was a gift from his children," officials of the Coon Rapids Police Department wrote.
The statue, valued at $1,300, is about 7’ tall, with an “MK ‘08” carved into the base, along with a brass plate on the base with the artist’s name, Mark Kurtz.
It was stolen from the vet’s home, and the suspect, police said, appears to be a white male possibly wearing a dark, long wig and gloves.
