$100,000 in bronze ship pieces taken in Port Townsend heist

Around $100,000 in bronze ship parts were stolen Tuesday night from the Port Townsend Foundry by robbers who spraypainted the marine business’ windows black to avoid being seen, according to the Three Sheets Northwest blog.

Sometime between 6 p.m. Tuesday and 8 a.m. Wednesday, thieves cut a hole into a chain-link fence behind the foundry’s machine shop and stole large, custom-made pieces such as beam hangars, cowl vents and a t-track rudder fitting, the blog says. The size of the items taken leads the shop’s co-founder, Peter Langley, to believe the thieves stole the pieces to sell as scrap metal.

“They definitely knew what they were looking for,” he told Three Sheets Northwest.
