According to Barnstable police, witnesesses told officers that a silent auction item was missing.

Police were able to identify the thief as 56-year-old Maureen Wiggin with the help of security footage. They later recovered the stolen item from the trunk of her vehicle.

Wiggin will appear in Barnstable District Court.
