Much to my dismay, after pouring my first cup of morning coffee and opening my front door, I realized that some idiot(s) stole our home’s beloved concrete gargoyles! These guys were epoxied down to the concrete stoop and weighed at least 120lbs each. It happened sometime between 7p and 6a on Wednesday night. Any leads or sightings are much appreciated!05/30/2014 at 9:52 pm #67537
That’s just wrong. Sorry to hear that.05/30/2014 at 9:59 pm #67538
Here is a picture of the gargoyles:
And the sad empty porch without them:

that’s awful!05/31/2014 at 7:27 am #67543
Sad to see the “after” — you have an interesting and quirky decorating sense!05/31/2014 at 8:17 am #67546
Keep an eye out on Craigs list etc. That sucks.05/31/2014 at 9:22 pm #67578
Another Gargoyle was stolen from a house in Haller Lake tonight

Folks protect your statuary !05/31/2014 at 9:55 pm #67582
Richy, where did you read about this? Wonder if it’s the same group of kids…06/01/2014 at 12:02 am #67587
You know, maybe we’re thinking about it all wrong. Has anyone seen a repainted 50’s ambulance around labeled “Ecto-1”? Could be that the gargoyles aren’t stolen, but rather have come to life as part of some major paranormal energy event.06/01/2014 at 6:52 am #67588
BC82, it was forwarded to from my son – posted on “Nextdoor – Haller Lake”
My family sat down to dinner tonight and witnessed a male in a late model Oldsmobile, painted matte black, stop in front of our mailbox, get out, and steal a gargoyle statue from our neighbor’s front yard. Broad daylight. We were so shocked, we barely got the license plate as they drove off!06/01/2014 at 8:37 am #67589
Great news! Any chance you could pass along the license plate? My wife has resources in that arena…06/01/2014 at 9:30 am #67592
Oh, no! I’m sorry. I hope you find who took them.06/01/2014 at 10:59 am #67593

Weird gargoyles are being targeted. Hope the thieves are busted very soon.06/01/2014 at 12:07 pm #67597
so sorry to hear that, hope you get them back06/02/2014 at 8:51 pm #67687
Ours were stolen today!!!! I am SO PISSED. Sorry to hear it happened to you too.06/03/2014 at 12:06 pm #67734
It appears to have been happening for a few years. How odd.06/03/2014 at 12:11 pm #67738
Seattle has a serial gargoyle thief.06/03/2014 at 12:36 pm #67751
Maybe they’ll all suddenly show up somewhere. Multiple gargoyles in front of the Fremont Troll, or on the grounds of a local school.06/03/2014 at 12:41 pm #67753
Been said before with missing gargoyles. Check basements, garages, sheds of your and neighbors. This time of year doors are left open and gargoyles go in and end up locked inside. Also look up. Possibly got treed by a dog.

That is it! Now I know what my next line will be. With angeline’s idea of exploding ink oaks in their base, I will begin pouring gargoyles and install them around Ballard. When they are yanked off their base, the ink will explode just after activating a camera. Who is in on this venture?
In VT, my birdbath was stolen by young hoodlums who liked her bare breasts. at least that is what the ransom letter said. https://www.facebook.com/BotanicalsOnClay/photos/a.119196021614443.1073741828.118513968349315/239813409552703/?type=1&theater06/03/2014 at 1:25 pm #67755
Buffalo – now someone here will think I did post something like that! You turkey. Made me laugh.
It is very weird with these missing gargoyles. If a nightclub, bar, cafe, coffee shop opens up with gargoyle theme, know where they came from.
I think the exploding dye pack is great.
Richy – Have your friend drive on NW 65th, on the right hand side of road heading west, at about 30th there is a car that matches that description. It’s parked there a lot.06/03/2014 at 1:27 pm #67756
Did Ballard High School do there Sr prank yet? That would make sense.06/03/2014 at 1:30 pm #67758
A high school prank was at the back of my mind BH.06/03/2014 at 1:58 pm #67771
That feels a little quaint given how sophisticated kids are these days with all their twitter and sex education.
