An emailed news release says police have a warrant to arrest 30-year-old Christopher Sensabaugh on charges of attempted theft and criminal damage to property.
An Internet database does not have a current phone number for Sensabaugh.
Police say the mural could be worth $200,000 to $1.1 million dollars.
The man was photographed by local residents. He told them he was removing the piece for an art show in London.
