Banksy stop sign taken from London street soon after it appears
A man suspected of stealing an artwork by Banksy of a stop sign adorned with three military drones, was arrested on Saturday, London police said.
A man in his 20s was in custody on suspicion of theft and criminal damage, the Metropolitan police said.
The sign was taken less than an hour after the elusive street artist posted a photo of the work on his Instagram page Friday.
Video showed a man with bolt cutters climbing up on a bicycle to remove the work from a sign post on a street corner in the Peckham area of south London while another man steadied the bike. The man who cut the sign free then ran off with it in his hand.
A voice on a video of the incident could be heard saying, “it makes me so annoyed,” as the man ran away.
