The Case Of The Stolen Ice Dragon Head Heats Up, Someone Needs A Knuckle Sandwich

A key piece of evidence in a larceny case in Salem has vanished. And police say warm temperatures are to blame. Back on February 12, the dragon head was allegedly cut out of a sculpture and stolen by two men who were caught lugging the head down Essex Street. The two men were charged with felony larceny. That dragon head was recovered and placed in a police evidence storage freezer.

Unfortunately, the refrigerator suffered an electrical malfunction on Tuesday and most of the evidence melted.

The Salem Patch says an officer discovered the melted sculpture head while performing a post-weekend check of the evidence room.

“The refrigerator must have stopped working sometime over the weekend because the ice sculpture head that was in the freezer was 75 percent melted,” police told the Salem Patch.

Police blamed too many steps in chain of ownership and someone expected to get knuckle sandwich…
