STUART — Two Port St. Lucie men were arrested on grand theft charges, after they were caught stealing the metal sculpture of a fish from outside the Stuart Heritage Museum early Sunday morning.

Sgt. Kim Major saw the men destroy the statue by cutting it from its base and placing it in the trunk of their automobile, said Sgt. Martin Jacobson of the department.

Jacobson identified the men as Charles Edward Boyd, 47, of the 2200 block of S.W. Mount Vernon St., and Dennis Lopez, 23, of the 2200 block of S.W. Lawrence St., both of Port St. Lucie. Both are being held under a $5,000 bond each.
