Knight's armor stolen from pole in Crownsville

A full suit of knight's armor valued at $2,700 was plucked from a pole on the grounds of the Renaissance Festival in Crownsville, county police reported.

The armor, used for jousting matches, was taken between May 27 and Tuesday, police said.

Jules Smith, the manager of the festival, said it would have taken several people to remove the heavy, handmade metal suit from its pole.

Mr. Smith said several mugs, tankards and other private property signs were stolen from the grounds.

On Sunday afternoon, police were called to the fairgrounds on Crownsville Road to investigate a complaint about suspicious people. Witnesses reported seeing a dark van and a light blue compact car leave the site shortly before 3 p.m.

Officers from the Southern District police station are investigating the incident.
