Halstead: Virtual police officer has his helmet stolen
11:00am Saturday 7th September 2013 in News
A virtual police officer who has been guarding an artist’s house for two decades has had its trademark helmet stolen.
The art piece, known as Robocop, has been standing in the garden of artist Georgie Roy, in Halstead Road, Gosfield, for 20 years.
But Robocop’s creator is now calling on real-life officers to come to her aid after a German motorcycle police helmet was removed from the artwork.
The circuit board policeman had its helmet stolen between 9am on Friday, August 23, and 7am the following day.
Georgie, 70, said: “He had a proper mannequin head and the helmet.
“It looks so sad at the moment, so I must get him another head or a hat because it looks really weird.”
