¢ A 23-year-old Baldwin man was arrested by Baldwin Police and booked into Douglas County Jail Wednesday for the theft of a sheep's head valued at $9,000. Baldwin Chief Mike McKenna said the man took the sheep's head from The Lodge, a hotel, in May after drinking at the hotel bar.
"The sheep is pretty rare, and it's only found in northern Canada in the mountains," McKenna said. The Baldwin Police recently received information that the man may be in possession of the sheep's head. McKenna said officers went to the man's Baldwin apartment and asked the man if he had the head. He said he did, and it was returned to its owner, McKenna said.
