When a USD 100,000 statue of an old-time racer went missing from outside a failing Harley-Davidson dealership in Timpagnos, Utah, police were mystified. Moving the four TON statue – not to mention the granite plinth it sat upon, was no easy task… and definitely beyond the usual “two-blokes push it onto a van” technique used by opportunist thieves!
The solution was simple – the artist took it. Concerned that the statue – which he claims belongs to him, not the dealership – would be named as an asset of the dealership which has filed for bankruptcy, sculptor Jeff Decker had it hauled back to his studio.
Police doubt any criminal action will be taken against Mr Decker, but there may be civil action along the lines of the one thing he feared, if the sculpture is considered an asset. Mr Decker presented a loan agreement to local police.
