  • TARGETED: The small figure taken from this sculpture "Conversations with myself" (shown here after a theft two years ago) apparently was recovered this morning.

Fox 16 is reporting
that a couple walking in Riverfront Park this morning found bags obtaining three bronze sculptures worth nearly $30,000 broken off pedestals and taken last week.

The city's Mark Webre says the sculptures can be repaired.

Among the items taken was — for the third time in four years — a small figure in the work "Conversations with myself."

The city is planning more security video coverage in the sculpture garden in the future.
