CRIME: Real Man Steals Almost-Real Statue

The Washington Post reports that an art installation in the Reston Town Center has been stolen. Some may call it a kidnapping, as the statue was nearly a real human.

From The Washington Post:
The woman, last seen wearing a bikini, goes by the name "Legs Folded." That's according to Marc Sijan, the Wisconsin artist who spent six months painstakingly crafting the life-size, eerily lifelike image out of poly-resin.

Apparently, the statue was stolen in broad daylight. According to the Fairfax County Police nobody realized that statue was being nabbed. "Someone carrying that life-sized sculpture down the street, you'd think it would be easy to spot. ... But it didn't draw the right attention because no one called us."

Ahh, crime in the suburbs. Kidnapping that's not really kidnapping.
