Cannon disappears (Oregon)





Under cover of the night, thieves scramble away with Payette’s Civil War-era monument.

The Civil War cannon replica has been snatched from Payette’s Central Park in downtown, and city officials want it back.

The cannon is a replica of a real Civil War cannon that was moved from the park to the Payette County Historical Society museum nearby about four years ago to protect it from being stolen, Platt said. The original is between 5 and 6 feet in length, and the replica a little smaller.

It’s estimated worth is valued at about $3,000, Platt said, making the crime a felony.
