Museum theft on Washington Island

The Washington Island Police Department is investigating a break-in from last week after three items were stolen from the Jens Jacobsen Museum.  An accordion, pair of eyeglasses and a Copenhagen snuff can from the Jens Jacobsen Cabin were reportedly taken sometime last week.  Police Chief Tyler McGrane says the director of the museum had noticed items missing earlier in the week and contacted employees to make sure they did not borrow any of the items. McGrane adds that the theft was reported on Friday after the director noticed a break-in.



McGrane says there is not a reported value of the stolen items and it is not sure the accordion was actually one used by Jens Jacobsen.  Anyone one with any information on the stolen accordion and other items taken should contact the Washington Island Police Department.
