The victim told police that she left her home between Sixth and Seventh avenues at 6 pm, off to visit her mother and not to return for another two days.
When she did come back, she found that a lock securing the gate into her yard had been busted and that three statues, one of which was originally worth $7,350, had been nabbed, along with more than $500 in plants and planters, according to police.
