It all started over at the Yoko Ono exhibit that is currently being hosted at the Gardiner Museum in downtown Toronto. The interactive show has reached tons of art lovers looking to sneak a peak at Ono's past and recent works. Though it seems one visitor liked one piece so much she decided to take it home.

Apparently the reason the thief was able to obtain the rock and leave without detection was due to the fact that the displays were very easily accessible considering it was an interactive exhibit.

As of now the police are looking to arrest the suspect on theft charges that carry a hefty $5,000 fine and are asking anyone who has any information to contact them at 416-808-5200.
