Museum Thieves Take Trophy Heads in Brazil

From Associated Press

Thieves raided a museum display case and made off with two softball-sized shrunken heads worth at least $15,000 each, the director of the archeology museum said.

"The thief or thieves simply unscrewed one of the glass panes of the case and walked away with the two heads," Orlando Marques de Paiva, director of the Museum of Ipiranga, said Wednesday.
