Museum offers reward for stolen model ship

Stolen Ship

NAUGATUCK, Conn. (WTNH)– A Naugatuck museum is offering up a $1,000 reward for a stolen model ship to be returned.

The wooden model of a Schooner Ship was stolen from the Naugatuck Historical Society Museum in November.

Since there has been no new leads, Ion Bank is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest of the thief or the return of the model boat.

Police say the model ship is of great historical and sentimental value to the historical society.

The ship is a replica of a schooner used by the Peter Paul Candy Company during Word War II. Tall ships like that were used to transport supplies because they were safe from German U-Boat attacks during the war.

Anyone with information on the model ship’s whereabouts is asked to contact Naugatuck police at (203) 729-7106.
