Interestingly, “The Rare Porcelain Oprah Winfrey Dolls” Is The Name Of My Styx Tribute Band. But I Digress


StyxWOOLWICH, Maine — The Sagadahoc County Sheriff ’s Department is releasing additional details of a December burglary in which police say thieves made off with more than $30,000 in jewelry, coins and a rare porcelain doll. The couple, who are in their 80s, live in the Mountain Road area in Woolwich and were away visiting relatives for the holidays when the burglary was discovered the morning of Dec. 29. Sgt. Dale Hamilton said the burglary is believed to have happened the previous night. Hamilton said jewelry valued at $20,000 was taken, including many pieces that had been in the family for generations, Hamilton said. A coin collection worth about $8,000 was taken, including Indian Head pennies, buffalo nickels, mercury dimes, a unique 1840 dollar bill and Susan B. Anthony silver dollars. Hamilton said some of the coins were rolled, which should attract suspicion. A rare porcelain Oprah Winfrey doll, which stands about a foot tall, was also taken. (read more at Bangor Daily News)
