(Norwalk, CA) ~ A bronze figure from the City of Norwalk’s “Looking to the Future” public art installation was reported stolen from the corner of Imperial Highway and Norwalk Boulevard on Monday, January 26. The missing bronze, a sculpture of a young girl waving her hand in greeting, was originally dedicated in 2000 as part of a larger composition that included a cascading water feature. The missing piece has an estimated value of $18,500. A report has been filed with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Anyone with information on the theft is asked to contact the Norwalk Sheriff’s Station at (562) 863-8711. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or text “TIPLA” to 274637 (CRIMES).

Councilman Luigi Vernola told HMG-CN, “it’s a sad day for Norwalk  that some individuals have lost respect for our vision. It’s  more than just a statue..it’s a statue of a child. A child!  It represents the spirit of this community and why we blaze trails. Let’s hope our fine Sheriff’s departments catch those who took it.”
