In EastLake Chula Vista a beautiful suburb of San Diego County there was a recent pig napping outside of Miguel's Restaurant in the EastLake Village Market Place. The 3 foot tall bronze pig valued at $15,000 was stolen around 5:30
A.M. on April 5, 2009. The Chula Vista Bronze Pig was a favorite of locals. I was there the day they installed the pig and saw the whole shopping center built after it was a vacant field for many years. My daughter used to climb on the pig and give him a hug. The pig is an EastLake landmark and a big hit with the EastLake children. It displayed a sign below it "Eat more Beef".
The two Chula Vista pig nappers backed into the pig with a pickup truck knocking it off of the bolts that secured it to its home. They then picked it up and threw it in the back of the truck and drove away. Unfortunately for the duo and a stroke of luck for the pig the Bank of America in the EastLake Village Market Place caught it all on video. The two nappers also went up to the ATM machine at the B of A and Police are asking tipsters if they know the two.
There is currently a $1,000 reward by San Diego County Crime Stoppers and a Miguel's Restaurant reward of a Carne Asada dinner for 10. Please bring our pig back. The latest update is that the Bronze Pig was returned to the Chula Vista Library and the two nappers turned themselves in to Chula Vista Police.
