    Woman Charged With Stealing 50 Glass Eyes

    LOL... notice the suspects last name

    ~~~~~

    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.

    Well, when I need someone to "keep an eye out for me," I'll know where to look.
