Bronze letters reading “City of Cerritos” were also ripped from the base of the statue.

Compared to the price of the artwork, the thieves likely did not get much money for their loot, city leaders said.

The thieves may have struck previously, according to investigators.

An art piece called “Join the Parade,” which was located outside the Cerritos Plaza Shopping Center, was taken six months ago.

Additionally, a statue that sat on top of a fountain outside the Cerritos Auto Square was also stolen.
