Someone stole a wok Tuesday afternoon in midtown Wichita, and it wasn’t one you can put on top of a stove.

It weighs an estimated 800 pounds.

The wok was taken from behind the Bamboo Express restaurant at 929 N. Broadway, Lt. James Espinoza said. The theft was reported shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday.

The large wok was placed outside when a new wok was brought into the restaurant, according to a police document, but it was not for sale or donation.

The wok “would have taken several people to move,” the document stated.
