BAR HARBOR, Maine — Thousands of dollars’ worth of jewelry was stolen from a local gem shop when someone entered the business sometime last weekend, according to police.
The burglary occurred at Willis Rock Shop sometime between the evening of Friday, Jan. 6, and the morning of Monday, Jan. 9, police Sgt. David Kerns said Thursday. He declined to say how entry was made into the Main Street business, saying that the burglary remains under investigation.
