Chilliwack – JUNE 12 UPDATE – Two weeks ago, the National Historical Site brass sign was pried off the from of the Chilliwack Museum Building. Theives also tried to take down the plaque on the Pipe statue facing Yale Road. The brazen thieves are at it again. On Wednesday, the Chilliwack Museum posted photos of another missing plaque.
Luckily, that sign was returned but they are still missing the brass National Historic Site sign from the front.
MAY 30 UPDATE – Staff at the Chilliwack Museum told FVN/chillTV on Thursday that RCMP and the City of Chilliwack did not have any clue as to who damaged the Piper statue in front of the museum, let alone prying off the bolted and glued Historical Plaque that was mounted by the front door. As you can see by the video, thieves were bound and determined to take what they could.
Staff just want the plaque returned, no questions asked.
MAY 29 ORIGINAL STORY – Really!?!? Brass thieves are one thing, but sometimes you wonder who is brazen enough to pull this off and have no conscience.
Over the weekend, the National Historical Site brass sign was pried off the from of the Chilliwack Museum Building. Unlike the recent removal of the Rotary plaque at Centennial Park , which was in need of repair, this Museum piece wasn’t in bad shape. But it’s gone and the Museum staff would like it back, no questions asked. The museum is in the original City Hall building.
