Police Probe Easton Antiques Theft

Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Md.- Police have launched an investigation after someone stole more than $10,000 worth of antiques and other valuables from an Easton self-storage unit. 

Easton police said the 65-year-old victim rents storage space at 404 Brookletts Ave., which is also shared by another business. Items have been stored there for approximately 10 years, according to investigators.

Police said the victim last saw the items on Sept. 19, but on Sept. 25, much of the property that belongs to him and his wife were discovered missing. Authorities said an on-scene investigation did not reveal much evidence or signs of any forced entry. Police are asking for assistance from the public for help in the recovery of the property and identifying any specific person or persons who may be responsible.

 The following is a partial list of the stolen property:

  • 10 piece multi-colored Fiestaware
  • (3) 19th century stoneware crocks
  • Surveyor's equipment
  • Austrian pitcher
  • Life-size carving of a seagull on piling
  • (6) boxes of wooden Barkley collection keepsake box kicks
  • (7) Armand Carney decoys
  • (6) Ward Brothers prints
  • (2) Theatre masks, circa 1800
  • 19th century portraits
  • (6) Assorted 19th century Shukker dogs
  • 19th century Wedgewood sauce boat with underplate
  • (2) Japanese vases
  • Several reference books
