A bizarre theft in Grand Island could cost the Stuhr Museum. A tee-pee cover was stolen from the Stuhr Museum at some point between Thursday night and Friday morning last week.

While the teepee is not an antique or artifact, officials with the Museum say it's one of many used in summer school classes.

They estimate the tarp weighs between 50 and 100 pounds. And it costs upwards of 1,500 dollars.

Joe Black, the Executive Director of the Stuhr Museum says they filed a police report last Friday.
"It was a unique thing to call into the 911 dispatch to have them send an officer out to take a report. I think those folks have probably heard lots of unusual reports but, our teepee's been stolen was probably a first for them."

Officials are asking anyone with information in regards to the missing tee-pee contact the Grand Island Police Department
