SUFFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the theft of a $25,000 oil painting from a Connecticut home.

Police say the burglary is believed to have happened sometime last weekend at the Suffield home.

The owner was in the process of moving, so the home was apparently unlocked when the artwork was taken.

Lt. Ryan Burrell says the unidentified owner told police he has no interest in pressing charges. He just wants it back and is offering a reward for its return.

Burrell says police have contacted local art dealers and auctions to report the theft and ensure the painting won’t be sold.

Detective Justin Fuller says the signed oil painting was an original work of Henry Farny, a renowned artist of the late 19th and early 20th century.
