Business owner offers reward for stolen threshold | News
ATHENS, AL (WAFF) - An antique threshold was stolen from an historic downtown building and the owner is offering a reward for its return.
According to the Athens News Courier, Wayne Kuykendall hired men to pour concrete at the downtown business he owns on Marion Street, on the east side of the Limestone County Courthouse Square. He is restoring the back of the building to its historically accurate architecture.
On the morning of May 28, workers planned to pour mud at the site, but the project supervisor noticed that the antique, cast-iron threshold needed for the project was missing on May 26. According to the report, Kuykendall had seen the piece the night before.
The project can't go forward without the threshold which would serve as the base for the front of the building where columns stand. Kuykendall hasn't been able to find another historically accurate threshold that would fit the building.
Kuykendall is offering a reward for its return. Anyone with information about the stolen Threshold should call Athens Police or Kuykendall at 256-777-4524.
