Police: Spaceship lifted in Halifax County

The metal spaceship that for years has been a fixture in a yard on the side of U.S. 58 West is now gone to planets unknown.

And authorities are investigating whether the spaceship’s owner decided to fly away or whether grand larceny is involved.

The larceny was reported to Halifax County Sheriff’s Office Saturday, and an investigation ensued.

According to Halifax County Sheriff Fred Clark, “As of this time, we are still trying to locate the owner to see whether it has been stolen or he just flew away in it.”

On Friday, the sheriff said citizens need to be aware of the fact the larceny of metal has increasingly become more prevalent both in this, as well as surrounding areas.

Authorities are continuing to investigate the theft of the metal spaceship, and anyone with information is asked to contact the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.
