OWENSBORO, Ky. - Police charged a woman Friday with stealing 50 antique glass eyes from a hospital display case on Christmas Eve.

Melissa Jane Wink, 36, of Owensboro, was charged with theft by unlawful taking over $300.

A surveillance camera recorded the theft from an exhibit of medical artifacts at Owensboro Medical Health System. A picture of the suspect was publicly released several days later.

The eyes were valued at $2,500. The hospital had mistakenly reported the eyes were worth $100,000, which was actually the value of the exhibit collection. The eyes were recovered at a house Wink was staying in.

Police Detective Ed Krahwinkel said he wasn't sure why someone would steal the eyes; there isn't high demand on the black market for them.

No they don't cry... but they don't see either... I think Geragos would rather hand them out the jurors!
