Police are investigating one of the largest* art heists in Vermont history: the $1 million theft of 30 bronze statues from the home of artist Joel Fisher, some weighting as much as 1,000 pounds.

The sculptor’s life work is likely to be smelted for the material—unless, of course, he’s lying, which is what the police rep more or less accuses him of doing at the end of the article:

The burglary was reported last week, said Senior Trooper Callie Field of the Vermont State Police in Derby. Law enforcement has “no idea what the heck is going on,” she said. She has received no evidence to establish clearly what was stolen, or even whether the works were on the property, Field said.

“A lot of stuff’s not adding up,” she said. “Who knows what was taken?”
