Well, I was pretty close. I agree, it should be a standard practice to at least put a state in the title or keywords.
I usually do, but forgot this time. I am truly sorry for this omission.
What a pair of idiots. What a brilliant plan also. They rented a saw, and then ‘sliced the statue up’ It was most likely a reciprocating saw they rented, and since we can reasonably assume these two morons aren’t exactly the hard working type, I’d be willing to bet they did a most half assed job on ‘slicing’ the statue before selling it to a place just the next county over. Yeah, no one will remember this poorly cut up one of a kind statue, stolen from the next county over that we’re selling for scrap. We’re geniuses!
That being said, some people get less prison for armed robbery/rape/etc.
