SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - One man is behind bars for stealing statues from auto dealer O.C. Welch.

Larry Ford was arrested Saturday night after investigators spotted one of the statues in plain view in a garage at a home on Settler's Point Road.

As WTOC first reported on Thursay, Welch reported seven statues missing from his Isle Of Hope home Thursday night.

Three were recovered from salvage lots on Friday.

Police say an investigation is ongoing.
