The only piece authorities have yet to track down is the poster auctioned off for $850.
Sgt. Ron Dausch said it was a strange coincidence the circus items were stolen near Peru, the self-proclaimed “Circus Capital of the World,” and the couple were arrested during the annual Circus City Festival.
He said Aysha Guffey was on probation for a theft charge at the time of the arrest, and Jason Guffey had served prison time for an unrelated theft conviction.
Dausch said additional charges may be brought against the couple. Deputies are currently appraising the value of all the stolen items.
