200-Pound Gorilla Statue Stolen on Camera
January 27, 2023
Somebody stole the Murphy the Gorilla statue from the front of a Maryland antiques store. The Montgomery County Police Department released surveillance video from outside the antique store. A suspect put on gloves before cutting the cable that locked Murphy to the store. Murphy the Gorilla is more than a sentimental loss for the Design Emporium owner. The almost 200-pound statue had just sold for $1,000 and was set to be shipped off, she told WTOP.
