Have you seen a 6-foot blue greyhound?
According to Baltimore City police, a 6-foot blue fiberglass greyhound statue was stolen from the campus between 11 p.m. June 10, and 6:30 a.m. June 11.
When police responded to the reported larceny, they found the mascot had been removed from its concrete base, and the metal supports that held the statue in place had been bent forward.
Sgt. Anthony Smith, a police spokesman, said it was unclear how the statue had been stolen. He also said that cameras on campus were not pointed at the area where the statue was located, and that there aren’t currently any suspects.
He said the value of the statue is unknown.
Jodi Pluznik, a spokeswoman for Gilman, said the statue was created by David Anderson, a middle school art teacher, and that the school wasn’t speculating on motives for the theft.
"We have no speculation on why it disappeared. I hope he’s having a safe trip where ever he is," Pluznik said.
She said if the mascot is spotted to call the school and they would come retrieve their greyhound.
"If they happen to see it in anybody’s garden, if they call Gilman, just call the main switch board (410) 323-3800 and ask for Mark Hoffman [superintendent of buildings and grounds] and I’m sure he’ll be more than willing to come get it," Pluznik said.
