SALT LAKE CITY—The Salt Lake City Police Department is requesting the community’s help to identify a vehicle believed to have been involved in the theft of parts of the Hoberman Arch.
At 1:22 p.m. Saturday, December 6, 2014, a man in a white pick-up stole several large metal pieces from the Salt Lake City impound lot, 2150 W. 500 S. The metal is part of the Hoberman Arch — once the centerpiece of the 2002 Winter Games Medals Plaza — which was being stored at the lot.

The suspect vehicle was last seen headed westbound on 500 South, driven by a female white adult wearing a red sweatshirt. A witness described the man as a white adult, 30 years old, wearing a plaid shirt and a black beanie.
