GCIS ART PROTECTION UNIT: MUSEUM SECURITY NETWORK BRIEFING
A police investigation is underway following the theft of a precious tear shaped glass cut finial, which topped a 19th century work of art at Birmingham Museum.
CCTV images taken from the museum’s security system show a man wandering the galleries before looking at the ornate cut glass stand. He then leans over a barrier to unscrew one of the four ornamental toppers.
The man then coolly walks out of the building and down Edmund Street.
The offence was reported to police four days after the theft which happened on Wednesday May 1, at around 3:30pm.
The stand, made by Birmingham company F&C Osler in the 1800s, is of historical significance.
The man captured on camera is described as white, 5’7” - 5’8” tall and of medium build. He is in his late 20s to early 30s with shoulder length brown hair, glasses, a goatee type beard and stubble.

GCIS ALERT: TERROR CONTINUES
New Orleans police are searching for three suspects Sunday after at least 19 people were shot during a Mother’s Day parade.
Police spokeswoman Remi Braden said in an email that many of the victims were grazed and most of the wounds weren’t life-threatening. No deaths were reported.
The FBI said that the shooting appeared to be “street violence” and wasn’t linked to terrorism.
The victims included 10 men, seven women, a boy and a girl. The children, both 10 years old, were grazed and in good condition. Police said at least two people were in surgery Sunday night.
