Thieves steal flying saucer from Roswell

The model craft was loaded on to a truck by thieves last Saturday before being dumped in nearby woods.
The saucer, which was once embedded in the exterior wall of the International UFO Museum and Research Center, was stolen last week not long after being repaired following a storm.

Surveillance camera footage showed the craft being loaded on to the back of a truck by three men.

When New Mexico authorities finally found the model it turned out that the perpetrators had broken it in to pieces and left it dumped in the middle of nowhere.

"We're sad, we thought maybe we would get it back in one piece but doesn't look like it; its in several pieces," said the museum's interim director Karen Jarmaillio.

It still isn't clear who the thieves were or what they were hoping to achieve by stealing the model.

On the plus side, the museum is planning to replace the saucer with a new one in the near future.

What, they couldn't fly it away? It seems they did, the police found it in several pieces, hinting at a very turbulent demise, of course the "officials" found no bodies among the wreckage. This has to be another G man cover up!

A cool model but it's hardly accurate. It should consist of more balsa wood, rubber, foil and look like a weather balloon.

I think it was aliens. They thought it was a copyright infringement of the saucer by the museum.

Most likely KIBs (Kids In Black) pulling a prank. Kids in black, well at least one teen in black has been apprehended: http://wtop.com/watercooler/2016/03/teen-arrested-in-theft-of-model-spaceship-from-ufo-museum/ If they would have thought it through they could have dressed up in black suits and dark sunglasses.
