Antique statue stolen from Caister church found

| May 24, 2014

Rev Tim Thompson, rector at Holy Trinity Church in Caister, said the 17th century marble bust of William Crowe was toppled from its plinth during a daylight raid almost two weeks ago.

The theft had damaged the “historic identity” of the seaside community, he said.

But, thanks to church property being recorded, the bust has been recovered. It is currently in police custody while officers investigate possible prosecution in relation to the theft.

But Mr Thompson is hopeful that the life-size likeness of Crowe will return home within the next four or five weeks.

“I am very pleased that it will be returning to its rightful place,” said Mr Thompson. “We’re looking forward to bringing him home and putting him back on the shelf.”
