BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County police have found five bronze sculptures stolen from a Bethesda museum garden, but say the pieces are damaged beyond repair. 

Police have issued a warrant charging Daniel Conticchio, 27, of Washington with theft and other offenses. 

Officers say Conticchio sold the damaged sculptures, which were stolen on Monday from the Phillip Ratner Museum of Art, to a recycling business in Rockville for $150. An employee of the business became aware that the sculptures were stolen and called police. 

Each sculpture weighs about 40 pounds and is about a foot wide and 2 1/2 feet long. Police say the stolen sculptures and two damaged pieces that were left behind were worth about $90,000.
