San Bernardino County deputies are looking for the suspect (or suspects) who vandalized a bronze statue honoring one of their own killed in a firefight in Big Bear with the renegade ex-LAPD cop Chris Dorner.The statue of detective Jeremiah MacKay was unveiled just this September 1, but authorities say that someone stole a dove that was a part of the statue. The dove represented MacKay's "peaceful nature," Holland Lowe told The San Bernardino Sun.

Lowe is a member of the committee that raised funds for the statue, and she says they hope to raise more money: "We’re going to try to raise funds to replace it and hopefully get a camera focused on the statue."

The statue was created by Khachik Khachatouryan and was the result of a grassroots fundraising effort.
