Police: Cleaner took Franklin bust out of anger

BRYN MAWR, Pa. - October 12, 2012

Lower Merion Township police released details of an interview with 46-year-old Philadelphia resident Andrea Lawton during her preliminary hearing Thursday. They say she also had an accomplice in the Aug. 24 theft from the Bryn Mawr home.

According to police, Lawton says she stole the bust because she was told it was valuable and wanted to get her boss fired. She allegedly fled with the bust to a relative's home in Alabama before being arrested in September as she got off a bus in Elkton, Md.

Lawton was ordered to stand trial on burglary, theft and other charges. She's being held on $1 million bail.
