Beach orcas stolen - again

Stolen orca #1
Once again, two of our beloved Beach Orcas were stolen, this time from Kayu Kayu Ac Park.

The individual(s) that made the decision to steal from our Richmond Beach community may be rethinking that decision in the light of day; and since this is a "small town" of caring and concerned neighbors who love to talk, it is unlikely that this theft will go unsolved for long. 

Since these are considered a valuable piece of commissioned art, if the orcas are not returned, we will have no choice but to move forward with an investigation, police involvement and potential subsequent charges. 

Before we start down that path, we would like to offer a “no-questions-asked” drop off of the orcas regardless of their current condition. Please deliver our orcas to the Richmond Beach Library by Friday, Sept. 28.

Stolen orca #2
We have been overwhelmed by the community response to the orcas -- how much they are enjoyed, how everyone looks forward to their return in the spring and how protective folks are of them. We have only had one other theft, which ended with that person making the right decision.

Once again, we are saddened for all concerned--the artists who created these orcas, the community that paid for them and the folks, especially the children, who delight in them.

Let’s work together, hold out for someone to do the right thing again this time and keep our Beach Orcas from becoming an endangered species.

Please contact RBCA Executive Director Sheri Ashleman at or (206) 542-9147 with information relating to the missing orcas.

I think we should learn from this and stop making it so easy for the thieves. Put them in local shops, restaurants, library etc.
