Valuable gold artifacts stolen from Cuzco’s National Science College

Three unidentified thieves stole various priceless gold artifacts from Cuzco’s National Science College on Monday, daily El Comercio reported.

The three crooks forced entry into the college around 2 a.m. Monday morning, knocked the guard out cold, and then stole the surveillance camera computer’s hard drive to cover their tracks. They then proceeded to steal a gold crucifix, chalice, gold-woven flags, as well as an undetermined number of gold and silver medals.

According to the assaulted guard, Asencio Tillco, 53, another guard, Jaime Ochoa, took a break at 10 p.m., and came back only at 3 a.m., after the robbery had occurred. Cuzco police is currently investigating the robbery.

Cuzco’s National Science College is the ancient city’s most traditional school. It was founded by Simón Bolívar more than 180 years ago.
