Half-ton bronze ram statue stolen, then returned to its owner in Phippsburg

A thousand-pound bronze statue of a ram stolen from a summer home in Phippsburg some time in the past two weeks was found Saturday in Brunswick and returned to its owner.

The bronze ram garden statue stands about 5-feet, 9-inches from the ground, Phippsburg Police Officer Zach Thomas said. Phippsburg Police Chief John Skroski said it’s valued at about $1,500.

Information led police to discover the ram Saturday at a Brunswick home, undamaged.

“Someone had purchased it,” Skroski said.

Skroski said he’s still not certain how the ram was removed from the Phippsburg home, but Thomas said a flatbed truck was required to retrieve the statue from Brunswick and return it to its owner in Phippsburg.

The case remains under investigation, and no charges have been filed.

Skroski said the incident is not related to a residential burglary on Main Road reported on Thursday to the Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Office, in which a Playstation game system, Toshiba laptop and three pieces of jewelry, among other items, were taken.
