Daycare dragon disappears, investigation ensues
JEFFERSON CITY —
A Jefferson City daycare is asking for help in finding a stolen purple dragon statue.
The Courtyard Early Learning Center, on Creek Trail Drive, posted surveillance video of the heist to its Facebook page.
The video shows two people come up to the building at about 6:10 a.m. Wednesday. One walked up with a colorful umbrella and the other arrived in a pick-up truck.
The two were shown placing the umbrella in nearby bushes, hoisting the dragon statue into the truck bed and then placing a tarp over it.
According to the Courtyard Early Learning Center, the dragon was a popular attraction there for 14 years.
Jefferson City Police said it took a report and had no suspect information as of Wednesday afternoon.
