Theft of 1,400-year-old Arkansas pottery still unsolved

Magnolia, Arkansas (AP) September 2010

Researchers in southern Arkansas are holding out hope that they’ll somehow recover more than two dozen pieces of Caddo Indian pottery that were stolen four years ago.

The 26 pots, bowls and bottles were likely taken in May or June 2006, a theft that Southern Arkansas University archaeologist Jamie Brandon discovered on his fourth day on the job.

University police and the FBI have investigated, but their work hasn’t led to a suspect. Brandon told the Banner-News in Magnolia the pots had been extensively photographed and documented, which would make it hard to move the items in a legitimate sale.

The pots were found in a dig in 1980 from the Cedar Grove site in Lafayette County. They were being stored at SAU but there were plans to return them to the Caddo Indian tribe in Oklahoma.
