Two bronze elephants similiar to this were stolen in Ventura County

It sounds like a joke at first. Ventura County Sheriff’s detectives are asking for your help in finding a pair of elephants.

But, the story is real, even if the elephants are not. The two elephants are actually six feet tall bronze statues stolen from the 8700 block of North Ventura Avenue, in the Casitas Springs area. Investigators say whoever was responsible for the thefts was organized, because the statues are heavy and would take several people to move.

The elephants disappeared three weeks ago. Investigators hope someone may have seen the missing bronze pachyderms, and can provide information on who took them, and where they are now.
