Art theft

A small theft from Pioneer Place has left one senior citizen without a treasured family icon.

A small theft from Pioneer Place has left one senior citizen without a treasured family icon.

On Tuesday, May 31, between four and five p.m., Margot Schweers heard a sound at her door, but thought someone was cleaning in the hallway.

She later discovered the sound was likely from someone taking her carved wooden eagle, which she had purchased two or three years previously from a young local First Nations carver.

The eagle is a part of her family crest, and she dearly misses the piece of art, which rested over the peephole in her door.

The eagle is about two feet wide by a half a foot tall, of wood stained a medium-brown, and was not signed by the artist.


“I was so proud … and I called it from then on my eagle nest here,” said Schweers.
