SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Salt Lake City police say thieves have stolen parts of a symbolic metal arch once displayed at Salt Lake City’s 2002 Winter Olympics.

Sgt. Robin Heiden says a witness on Saturday reported a man removing several large pieces of the arch from a fenced-off city impound lot where the structure was being stored.

The man loaded the pieces into a pickup truck driven by a woman.

Heiden told The Salt lake Tribune that (https://bit.ly/1zGAGPW) that police believe the metal was stolen for scrap and are reaching out to metal dealers.

The disassembled arch has been in the lot since it was removed from the University of Utah in August.

Officials said the arch was never meant to be displayed at the school permanently and Salt Lake City was trying to find it a new home.
