I want to be positive and think the robbery is a kind of Robin Hood-inspired action.” Investigating officer Detective Inspector Jess Milne said: “We are still actively searching for the stolen piece of artwork and there will be a continued police presence in and around the palace while this search continues.“We believe a group of people used at least two vehicles during the burglary, which was reported to Thames Valley Police at 4.57am on Saturday.“Investigations are continuing and it is our main priority to locate the stolen item and the offenders involved.“I would urge anybody with any information about the burglary, no matter how insignificant you believe this to be, to call the 24-hour non-emergency number 101, quoting URN 273.” “Who’s so stupid to steal a toilet? America was the 1% for the 99%, and I hope it still is. I want to be positive and think the robbery is a kind of Robin Hood-inspired action…”- Maurizio Cattelan#RIPgoldtoilethttps://t.co/Ol7x6CfGjF pic.twitter.com/4QLBuCbgZN— Blenheim Palace (@BlenheimPalace) September 16, 2019 Blenheim Palace said the robbery caused “significant damage and flooding” and released a picture of the stall today.The lavatory, plumbed into the water system so that visitors could fully engage with the artwork, is worth £4.8 million and its creator, Maurizio Cattelan, 58, said the burglars who stole it were “the real artists”. Mr Hare did not think the man was an employee and had no idea how police had connected him to the lavatory. Police searching for a gang of burglars who stole a solid gold lavatory from Blenheim Palace have released a 66 year-old man on bail.He had been taken in for questioning just hours after the artwork was ripped out of an interior wall at the country house where Winston Churchill was born.This morning, Dominic Hare, Chief Executive of Blenheim Palace told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “You always take a risk in showing art. We have a sophisticated security system, but are now challenged to look hard at ourselves.”Last month, Edward Spencer-Churchill, half-brother of the current Duke of Marlborough and founder of the Blenheim Art Foundation, told the Sunday Times: “It’s not going to be the easiest thing to nick.“Firstly, it’s plumbed in and secondly, a potential thief will have no idea who last used the toilet or what they ate. So no, I don’t plan to be guarding it.” “Our imagination runs wild, but they are still holding him so they must be convinced there’s a clear connection,” he added.Asked if the artist could have played a part in the theft, Mr Hare said: “I think he would be mortified by that suggestion and has said so. That simply hasn’t happened here.”But he is right. He feels like he is in a heist movie and I think it took him quite a few minutes to comprehend that this had actually happened.”He was mortified, shocked, praying that it was a prank and that it would come back. Now he’s just reflecting, I think.”Ticket holders who booked three-minute time slots to see the fully functioning lavatory will be reimbursed.“They could fully perform on it if they wished, but most people couldn’t time it that way so they just took selfies,” Mr Hare said.
