A sound stage on the Warner Bros. lot is thought to be particularly "lucky" when it comes to movies that go on to win Oscar gold for best picture.
Gold Nugget Stolen From U Of A Science Museum
Police are searching for a gold nugget stolen from a museum at the University of Arizona. The chunk is worth $30,000.
The gold was on display at U of A’s Flandrau Planetarium when it was reported missing on Saturday. It was part of a traveling exhibit of rocks and minerals from Australia.
U of A Police Sgt. Filbert Barrera said the nugget is unusually large.
"It’s about 3.5 inches by 1.5 inches. It also weighs about seven ounces or almost a half of pound. So basically about a half a pound of gold. A lot of museum enthusiasts know about this nugget," Barrera said.
Security is tight at the Flandrau, and Barrera said Tucson detectives have a good idea how it was stolen but they aren’t sharing any details. U of A police are urging anyone with information to contact them immediately.
