Police in Washington are asking for the public's help in recovering a pair of ivory elephant tusks stolen from the Wilson Building.

If information provided to DC Crime Solvers leads to an arrest and indictment, the caller will be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Anyone with information is urged to call police at 202-727-9099.

The John A. Wilson building on Pennsylvania Avenue in northwest Washington houses the offices and chambers of the mayor and D.C. Council.
