VIDEO: Raiders steal Terracotta Army replica statues in brazen raid on Menston home

A PAIR of brazen thieves were caught on camera stealing two statues worth £2,000 from a driveway.
Two three-foot high statues, clay replicas of the Chinese Terracotta Warriors, were stolen from a house in Menston.
The Terracotta Army sculptures, worth £1,000 each, were shipped from China by the homeowner 12 years ago. The two stolen items form part of a collection of six identical sculptures.


In the CCTV footage, captured by the resident, a grey Citroen C3 is driven to just beyond the house and parked
Two men then get out. One of them, in his 40s with a black beard, is wearing navy blue trousers and a navy blue Adidas hooded top, with three white stripes on both shoulders, with its hood up. He is also wearing green and grey gloves.
The second man, in his 20s, who is wearing a baseball cap, grey panelled jacket, light grey jeans and grey and white Adidas trainers, also exits the vehicle, and opens its boot on the way to join his accomplice at the driveway.
Both men then go to opposite sides of the driveway and pick up a statue each

They are then driven off in the Citroen by a third man.
The resident, who did not want to be named, spoke of his shock at having the items stolen.
He said: “I feel upset. It’s the brazen nature of it.
“If anyone, or any business, has been approached to buy these soldier statues, I would urge them to contact the police.
“I have another four of them in my house. They are part of a collection that I have had for a number of years. The statues have been there for a few years. When I’ve talked to people about what happened, they can’t believe they were taken. They are quite heavy and substantial.”
