VIDEO: Roswell police search for UFO thieves

ROSWELL, N.M. (WLS) -- Roswell Police are searching for three men who are seen on surveillance video stealing a UFO from a museum.

On the video released by the police, you can see three men get out of a pick-up truck, load the UFO, and drive away. Officials later found the museum decoration in a ditch off Highway 70 about two miles west of Roswell, destroyed.

The spaceship had been a fixture in downtown Roswell, where it was long mounted outside the UFO museum before a recent snowstorm damaged it.

It was being stored behind the museum before it was stolen.

No arrests have been made.

Roswell still stirs debate about extraterrestrials seven decades after the 1947 crash of a flying object.
