Swiped Swine: Mid-City Pig Statue Stolen During JazzFest


During JazzFest, pulled pork is commonplace in Mid-City, but stealing the bacon is taking things a step too far. Police are searching for the criminals who pilfered a pig statue in Mid-City amid the Fest. The statue, which was located outside of a home in the 3400 block of Esplanade Ave., depicts a pig wearing a chef's outfit and holding a sign that says "Eat More Crawfish." The statue was stolen on the morning of May 1, no doubt by a group now living high on the hog.

 

Detective Robert Stoltz said the pig's owner is a man who throws a large crawfish boil every year for Jazz Fest. The victim's friend, an event organizer from Las Vegas, had the statue custom made for the party. According to Stoltz, the invoice for the pig puts the pulled pork's value at $4,000, and $7,000 after shipping and handling. 

 

"It was the first weekend of Jazz Fest, and when the [victim] came out, the sign and the base were still there, but the pig was gone," Stoltz said.  

 

Due to the heffer's hefty price tag, the person responsible for the crime is wanted for Felony Theft. 

 

Anyone with  information as to the location of the pig is asked to notify Detective Robert Stoltz, First District Investigations, 504-658-6012, rfstoltz@nola.gov, 911, or Crimestoppers at 821-1111.
