‘Moss Man’ Captured in Possible Museum Robbery

It’s been a little while since we’d last told you a good museum theft story and for that, we’re sorry. Fortunately, we have a doozie for you. In Oregon, at the Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals, just outside of Portland, police were investigating the surrounding grounds in what they thought might have been a robbery (a “large hole in the bathroom wall” that hadn’t previously been there had been discovered early last week) when they discovered “Moss Man,” a 36-year-old man dressed in a camouflage suit, one of those ones you see snipers wearing in movies, all covered in moss. Although he didn’t have any stolen items on him (it appeared he was on his way back to go in through the aforementioned bathroom wall hole), he has been arrested “on burglary and criminal mischief charges.” He was also bitten by a police dog. It’s believed that he was possibly after the museum’s collection of gold nuggets, which had previously been a target back in April when they were stolen and then recovered shortly thereafter.
