Menorah Stolen from Town Common

The Menorah that is displayed on the Town Common was stolen last night, just as it has been taken in year's past. The Amherst Police received a call at approximately 1:40 am from an Amherst College student stating he had just witnessed people running through the Amherst College campus with a large Menorah. At the same time, Officer Batchelor discovered that the Menorah from the Common was missing. Both Amherst Police and Amherst College Police searched the Amherst College campus for the missing Menorah. It was later recovered by Officers and returned to the Town Common. At this time there are no suspects.

So you got the Menorah back on the Common before daybreak?

Yes, it was recovered about an hour after we discovered it missing.
