PRESCOTT, AZ (AP) -

Sheriff's deputies in Yavapai County are seeking a thief who carted off two large metal statues from the yard of a home in rural Prescott.

A sheriff's news release says the homeowner discovered the statues missing on March 22 after last seeing them about two weeks before. The owned has no idea who may have taken the statues.

Deputies checked local scrap yards to no avail.

Anyone who has information about the theft is asked to call the sheriff's office or Yavapai Silent Witness.
