Police said the heads of the three llamas were broken off at some point in the evening hours of Dec. 21 and the early morning hours of Dec. 22. One of the statue heads is presumed stolen.

In a news release, police said that the statue holds “special value for the private school and its community.”

The Potomac School is offering a $5,000 reward with information that leads to an arrest and prosecution of those responsible. That reward is in addition to a possible reward offered by Crime Solvers.

Anonymous tipsters are eligible for cash rewards from Crime Solvers between $100 and $1,000 if their information leads to an arrest. Tips can be submitted anonymously on the Crime Solvers website.
