On Friday the 22nd of May two Buddha statues were taken from the waiting room of the holistic therapy salon College George.
The holistic therapy salon, situated on New Street, has no increased its security measures and local police are investigating the theft.
Both Buddha statues are gold. The larger statue featured the Buddha in a lying down position while the second statue depicts a standing Buddha.
In March of this year, a Buddhist caused alarm in a Kyoto temple by stealing over 20 Buddha statues. The man told police, “I stole this because of my devotions,” and explained, “I like Buddha statues. I took it home and prayed to it every day.”
The Kenninji temple also responded by increasing security.
