Magician says 'tool thieves' stole bags of circus props

Melanie Earley Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Kia ora neighbours, a foam baguette, one-of-a-kind rings and juggling balls are just a few of the items an Auckland magician has lost after thieves smashed their way into his van.
“Le Cirque de JP,” a French magician and circus performer who has called New Zealand home since 2009, said two suitcases full of circus props were stolen from outside his home in Kohimarama, while he slept earlier this week. Now he's offering a reward to anyone who can help him find his items.
