A man has been arrested in the UK on suspicion of stealing Banksy artwork, the BBC reports. The design, which was painted on a road sign, disappeared within an hour of being posted yesterday.

The theft occurred in broad daylight in London and was filmed by passers-by who had also come to see the sign. The man is suspected of robbery and vandalism.

Three drones can be seen at the stop sign. The police have now installed another stop sign so as not to disrupt traffic. A local artist put a stop sign underneath and recreated Banksy's art.
