Winnipeg police say a valuable religious artifact stolen from a city Buddhist temple this week has been located.
No other details were available on how the reportedly 136-kilogram decorative incense urn was located, or if any arrests have been made
Late Monday night, the urn was taken from outside the Hausing Buddhist Temple at 585 Cumberland Ave. Imported from Taiwan, the large burning pot had been mounted on the front steps of the temple since 1995.
The urn is bronze and is detailed with large phoenix birds on the bowl and figurine dragons on the handles. It stands about a metre high and weighs approximately 136 kilograms (300 pounds).
Police say the urn is worth about $8,000.
