At 3 a.m. Sunday, May 10, thieves broke into a yard in Black Creek and made off with three chainsaw carvings: a five-foot wizard (above), a three-foot soaring eagle (below) and a two-foot owl.
“They had parked their white car on the opposite side of the highway and snuck in through the fence,” said Angela Kroeker, who, along with her partner, recently opened an outdoor gallery in Black Creek. “We feel so violated, how can people steal from others that are just barely making ends meet.”
Anyone with information regarding the thefts is asked to contact the Comox Valley RCMP at 250-338-1321. To remain anonymous, call the Crimestoppers tip line at 1-800-222-8477.
