WYANDOTTE – Jaron Reeser, 40, of Wind and Fire Chimes of Columbus, Ohio, reported July 14 that 180 wind chimes were stolen overnight from his Street Art Fair booth.

The stolen wind chimes were valued at $7,020,

The wind chimes, made of copper and bronze, attracted almost as much attention during the fair as Reeser’s Yorkies, Nelson and Petey, who drew their share of fans to the booth, No. 41, at the end of the row at Biddle and Oak.

The cattail wind chimes are 3 feet high, and include five cattails, two leaves and a stake. The chimes are hand-made in Ohio by Reeser, who has 20 years of experience with the medium.

Reeser reported that his Apple iPod also was stolen.
