I was shocked to read this morning of the recent theft of a Jack Lewis painting from the President Home at Wesley College in Dover. The painting (appraised at $4500) depicts the home on South State Street and was commissioned by the home's owners 12 year's ago. Jack Lewis is a beloved painter in the community of Dover and the state of Delaware. The painting is believed to be stolen earlier this year during renovations of the home and change of college president.
The home on South State Street, Dover that is depicted in the stolen painting.
Police are currently searching for the painting and the sticky fingers who stole it. If you have any information as to the whereabouts of this painting please contact Dover police at 736-7111 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333.
