An item has been stolen from this week's crossword (pdf, puz, pdf solution). The problem is, not only do we not know where it is, we don't even know what has been stolen. So, your task is to figure out the identity of the stolen item.
The solution to the meta-puzzle will be posted next week, but in the meantime, you can hit me up at email@example.com if you want a hint/think you have the solution/etc.
Enjoy the puzzle, and please share!
