According to the Advocate:
Who would want to steal a 600-pound bronze statue of a police officer?
That was the question that perplexed police and the public in August 2008, when a life-like sculpture by artist J. Seward Johnson was nabbed from its designated spot at Broad Street and Greyrock Place. It was one of 53 pieces showcased as part of an annual Art in Public Places exhibit in downtown Stamford.
Part of the mystery was solved Thursday when two veteran Stamford police investigators recovered the statue, valued at around $125,000, at the Queen of Peace Cemetery in North Stamford.
