A seafood supplier in the Plantsville section of Southington is asking for the public's help locating its lobster statue, which went missing weeks ago.
The owner of the Gulf Shrimp, Camille Simoneaux, said the fiberglass lobster statue was located at the company's Atwater Street location for the past eight years.
Customers were known to bring their children to the company, just to take photos with the statue in the parking lot.
The statue, which weighs about 200 pounds and is 5'5" tall, went missing a month ago, according to the police report.
Company officials reported the theft of the lobster, which is worth about $2,000, to police on Tuesday.
"The report was delayed as the theft went unnoticed by employees, until a customer pointed out the absence of the decorative lobster," the police report stated.
Simoneaux told Eyewitness News people thought it had been removed for repairs and painting.
Police said there are no suspects at this time. Anyone with any information about the statue is asked to contact the Southington Police Department at 860-621-0101.
