Someone Jacked The Ed Sullivan Statue From The TV Academy
The search is on for an Ed Sullivan statue that's been the victim of a dastardly heist. The bronze statue of Sullivan was minding its own business on its pedestal outside the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame in North Hollywood on Sunday when someone came along and snatched it, NBC LA reports.
The statue is not huge—it's only 1.5 feet tall and weighs 20 pounds—but police say it's worth an estimated $45,000. It was part of a larger display of other TV notables on display in the Hall of Fame plaza. Sullivan is the only figure reported missing.
Detectives are reviewing surveillance footage and passing out flyers to nearby scrapyards. If you happen to see the statue in your neighbor's garden or at the local pawn shop, you should call NoHo burglary detectives at 818-623-4081.
