NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police say a third person has been arrested in connection with a stolen Confederate monument.

The New Orleans Police department said Stanley Pate turned himself in Friday after being wanted in connection for possession of stolen property.

Jason Warnick and Kathryn Diionno were arrested earlier.

The chair-shaped monument was recovered in New Orleans after it was taken last month from a cemetery in Selma, Alabama.

Someone later sent an email signed “White Lies Matter” claiming responsibility, and then sent fake photos pretending the chair had been turned into a toilet.
