FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) — The person who broke into an off-the-grid cabin in remote western Maine didn’t get away with money, jewelry or other valuables. Police say the thief took a pair of bear heads.

Franklin County Sheriff Scott Nichols says a Waterboro family reported last week that someone had broken into their cabin in secluded Alder Stream Township sometime over the summer.

Nichols tells the Morning Sentinel the family hadn’t been to the cabin since April, so the exact time of the break-in is not known.

In addition to the stuffed bear heads, the thief also made off with two lawn chairs and three flashlights. The sheriff says the cabin’s futons appear to have been slept in.

The owner said the bear heads had been in the family for 40 years.
