Our friends at Lulubell Toy Bodega sent out an e-mail last night asking for help locating about $5,000 in merchandise stolen from the 439 N. Sixth Ave. store and gallery.
Here's their request for help, which includes finding the 3-foot tall fiberglass guy posted above:
We are a very small, locally owned business with 2 owners and no staff. Last night someone through a rock through our window and grabbed all they could before the police arrived. We suffered about $5,000 in loss, which for a business our size is a huge blow.
One of the most identifiable items taken was a 3 foot tall fiberglass statue, one of maybe 25 in the world. You can't hide or sell this big guy very easily, so I am hoping by getting the word out, someone will speak up. Approx. 50 items total were taken. Any tips can called in to Tucson Police Department, or sent to this email address or phone number below.
The items taken are very niche, and will be terribly hard for anyone to sell & get their value, so the best thing in this situation would be for us to recover what was taken.
Have information that can help? Call (520) 622-5858 (LULU) or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
