Someone Steals an 'Easter Island Head' Sculpture From Front Yard

Police reports: Theft under $300 and criminal damage to property among the miscellaneous items in this week's blotter.

You know those monolithic human figures carved by the Rapa Nui people from rock on the Chilean Polynesian island of Easter Island between the years 1250 and 1500? Yeah, those things.

Well, a 4-foot tall one was taken from the front of a Geneva home. We are not making this up.

Also, someone decided orange paint would look good on the sidewalk of a home on Wood Avenue. Why, we do not know. We simply report what's in the Geneva police blotter.

Theft Under $300—Someone took an “Easter Island Head” sculpture from the front yard of a residence in the 2200 block of Pepper Valley Drive sometime between 6 p.m. Nov. 16 and 7 a.m. Nov. 17, Geneva police reports said. The 4-foot cement statue had an estimated value of $100.

Criminal Damage to Property—Someone spread orange paint on the sidewalk and grass on the south side of a residence in the 900 block of Wood Avenue sometime between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m.  Nov. 14, Geneva police reports said. The sidewalk leads from the front of the residence to the rear patio area. The owner estimated that it would cost $200 to remove the paint.
