Man steals pricey animal statues from Oakland Park antique store

Dog, lion statues among items stolen

OAKLAND PARK, Fla. – Broward Sheriff's Office detectives are trying to identify a man who was caught on surveillance video stealing pricey animal statues from an Oakland Park antique store.

The thefts occurred over two days in June at the Decorative Arts & Fine Antiques store on North Dixie Highway.

BSO spokeswoman Gina Carter said the man stole a statue of a dog, weighing more than 100 pounds and valued at $800.

The thief returned the next day and stole a 5-foot wall planter worth $250 and a statue of a lion worth $600.

Detectives believe the same man is involved in other similar burglaries along North Dixie Highway in recent weeks.

Anyone with information about the thefts is asked to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS or BSO detectives at 954-202-3116.
