One day after it was unveiled, a Thurman Thomas tree carving was stolen stolen from the Erie Community College parking lot, across from gate four at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The carving was created from a tree damaged during the historic October storm of 2006. It was the 34th carving unveiled by “Carvings for a Cause.”
Therese Forton runs Carvings for a Cause. She tells Two On Your Side, the carving was likely stolen on Sunday night. She received word of the theft around 8:30 p.m. The carving was left in the E.C.C. parking lot overnight. Forton planned on picking it up on Monday morning.
Orchard Park Police are now looking for the carving. If you have any information, you are asked to call police at 662-6444. (WGRZ)
Mind of Joe
Seriously, you’ve got to be kidding me!? First Leodis McKelvin’s front yard, then Donte Whitner’s jewlery, now fans are stealing statues made of wood! I wonder if they misplaced Thurman’s helmet? What white trash people would steal a statue? Did the thieves decide to tie a rope around the statue and drag it from their RV? Maybe the statue is in someone’s basement with Whitner’s jewelry on it. WTF else can go wrong this year? And to think we only have 11 more games left.
