A woman was arrested for stealing a $3 million porcelain bust of Benjamin Franklin from a home in Lower Merion.

Police say Andrea Lawton stole the rare item back in August from a residence in Bryn Mawr.

The FBI took Lawton into custody in Maryland and State Police assisted with the arrest.

The bust, estimated to be worth more than $3 million, was recovered and sustained some damage.

Charges are pending and Lawton is due to make her first court appearance on Monday.
