Thieves steal statues from auto dealer O.C. Welch

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Somebody made off with a couple hundred thousand dollars worth of art from auto dealer O.C. Welch.

He says someone stole three statues, each valued around $40,000 a piece from his property 10 days ago and in the last few days, they made off with four more.

Chances are, they didn't act alone.

"What's going through my mind is when they're planning on coming back and what else they're going to steal. This is definitely not something that children are doing. These statues are very, very heavy and it would take at least three people to pick up one of them," said O.C. Welch.

If you know who stole them, Welch is offering up a $2,500 reward or you can call police.
