Historic rock art stolen outside of Ash Fork
Missing petroglyph panel is thousands of years old

ASH FORK, Ariz. - Officials in the Ash Fork area are currently investigating the theft of a rock petroglyph panel that Forest Service archaeologists said dates back thousands of years. The missing panel, which measures roughly two feet long by one foot wide, contained a number of abstract, western archaic images, according to archaeologist Neil Weintraub with the Kaibab National Forest. He said the theft likely occurred sometime last year.
