Two people have been charged in connection with a £2000 Buddha stolen from a front garden in Harrogate.

Police arrested a 47-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman on suspicion of theft on Friday 12 July 2013.

They are due to appear at Harrogate Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 1 August 2013 to answer the charge.

The solid stone Buddha, which was imported from Bali is worth £2000 and officers believe that due to the size and weight of the solid stone statue it would have taken around four people to lift it.
