LONDON — A second suspect was arrested within the alleged theft of a piece by the elusive road artist Banksy of a cease signal adorned with three navy drones, London police mentioned Sunday.
A person in his 40s was in custody on suspicion of theft and legal harm, the Metropolitan police mentioned. A suspect in his 20s who was arrested Saturday was launched on bail.
Witnesses who arrived at a road nook Friday within the south London part of Peckham lower than an hour after Banksy posted a photograph of the work on Instagram mentioned they had been shocked to look at a person with bolt cutters take away the signal as one other man steadied a motorcycle he stood on.
The incident was captured in photographs and video.
A lot of Banksy’s political and satirical artwork is essential of conflict, and plenty of of his followers interpreted the work as calling for a cease-fire within the Gaza Strip.
