Lobster & Banana Steal Sculpture!

by Kristen Flowers

A few unsavory characters broke into the student union at the University of North Carolina a few weeks ago and made off with a $1,000 sculpture!  The thieves weren’t hard to spot on security video- one was wearing a lobster costume, and the other was dressed as a banana!  According to the tape, four men (including the costumed crooks) entered the building through an unlocked door around 3 am on April 1st and stole a wooden sculpture.  A representative from the student union says no charges will be filed if the piece of art is returned unharmed, but the school’s Department of Public Safety is treating the case as a criminal incident.  The thieves have yet to be identified, suggesting that while their costumes were ridiculous, they may have done the trick!
