Re­ward for Re­turn of Stolen Gum­nut Baby

Western Suburbs Weekly - - City of Perth News -

The City of Perth is of­fer­ing a one-thou­sand dollar re­ward for in­for­ma­tion that leads to the con­vic­tion of the of­fender(s) who stole one of two Gum­nut Baby sculp­tures. More than three weeks since the theft, Lord Mayor Lisa Scaf­fidi said the dis­ap­point­ment voiced by the com­mu­nity has led to the de­ci­sion to of­fer a re­ward. “It was clearly a de­lib­er­ate act and a bru­tal theft, I want to keep this at the fore­front of peo­ple’s mind in case they see it,” Ms Scaf­fidi said. “If the sculp­ture is melted down or is not re­cov­ered, it will be very dif­fi­cult to re­place. “It is very dis­heart­en­ing for the peo­ple who work so very hard to present our City in the best pos­si­ble way. “I hope that of­fer­ing this re­ward leads to the safe re­turn of this city trea­sure. “The theft has been re­ported to Po­lice and De­tec­tives are con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate.” Ms Scaf­fidi said. The sculp­ture was stolen on the week­end of 21-22 March 2015 from Stir­ling Gar­dens, near the cor­ner of Bar­rack Street and St Ge­orge’s Ter­race. Any­one who has in­for­ma­tion about the re­moval or the where­abouts of the sculp­ture is asked to con­tact Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
