10K statue stolen from Madoff- love it

$10K statue stolen from Madoff's Florida estate

My favorite part of this story is the quote from the investigator- "no leads, not a single clue". Read: We're not bothering to look. Go take more, we won't have any clues then either.

(CNN) -- Police say a sizable statue worth more than $10,000 was stolen this month from the posh Florida estate of Bernard Madoff, the Wall Street investment adviser accused of operating a $50 billion Ponzi scheme.

The 4-foot-high statue, which portrays two lifeguards sitting on a bench, was stolen December 19 from Madoff's estate in Palm Beach, police said.

The theft happened eight days after Madoff was arrested in New York in connection with the investment fraud allegations.

"The property manager left the residence one afternoon, and when she returned, she noticed a statue that was normally kept by the pool was missing," Palm Beach police Sgt. Richard Sorge said.

Sorge said investigators have "no leads, not a single clue" in the investigation of the heist.

A fraternity brother of mine lost $958,000,000 (not a typo) to Madoff. He'll have to ssteal lots of statues.
