LITTLE ROCK — Little Rock authorities say three sculptures worth $30,000 have been stolen from Riverfront Park.

The city's Parks and Recreation director says he believes the statues were taken Thursday night. They're made of bronze with copper detail and were sawed off at their base.

Two others were taken from the same garden about a year and a half ago. One was recovered and the other was replaced.

The director says there is only one security camera in the park. He says the city will add more cameras, signs and lighting because of the theft. It will also trim trees in the park.

Police are investigating the theft.
