Sculpture Missing from Madoff's NY Beach Home

Security has been tightened at Bernard Madoff's former beach home after the theft of a sculpture off the front porch.

East Hampton Town Police Chief Todd Sarris says the 4-foot-tall sculpture, with an Aztec motif, is valued at around $300.

A caretaker reported the sculpture missing on Saturday. He said he'd last seen it two days earlier.

The oceanfront property is in Montauk, on the eastern end of Long Island. It's list for sale at $8.75 million.

Madoff was sentenced in June to 150 years in prison for orchestrating a massive, decades-long Ponzi scheme.

The punishment included a forfeiture order that stripped Madoff and his wife of nearly all their wealth, including homes.
