Boy Scout statue stolen in Tacoma
TACOMA, Wash. — Tacoma Boy Scouts are asking metal recyclers in the region to watch for a 6-foot bronze statue of a Boy Scout that was stolen.
It was toppled over the weekend from its place outside the Tacoma headquarters for the Boy Scout Council. The council serves 18,000 Scouts in Pierce, Thurston, south King, Kitsap, Mason, Grays Harbor, Lewis and Pacific counties.
The News Tribune reports the statue cost nearly $14,000 when it was installed 12 years ago.
The theft was reported Monday to police. Scouts are hoping the statue will be returned somehow.
