CRIME STOPPERS CASE 1716
FOR THE WEEK OF APRIL 27, 2017
DEPARTMENT CASE NUMBER: 17C16676
LEAD INVESTIGATOR: DET. MILLER, WICHITA POLICE DEPARTMENT
About 10 a.m. Monday, March 13, a staff member making the rounds at Public Storage in the 1100 block of South Rock Rd., noticed the lock had been cut off one of the storage units.
From the business’s video, as well as video from neighboring properties, detectives determined that the suspects, driving a red truck, made two trips early that Monday morning. The stolen items included patio furniture and several paintings. Similar paintings by the same artists are shown below.
The paintings were landscapes by Marco Sassone, landscapes with birds by Milford Zornes and animals by John Ruthven. Two paintings of ships by John Stobart also were taken. They were stored in brown boxes and can be seen in the back of the truck shown below.
The video shows a man from the passenger side of the truck get out and enter a passcode to access the storage facility.
