National News // July 1, 2020

Staff at a museum in canton Bern are scratching their heads after a thief stole a 100-year-old maid’s uniform.

The dress was on a mannikin as part of a display at the castle museum in Jegenstorf. 

The museum director, Murielle Schlup, is perplexed. She says the uniform is not particularly valuable – but was very pretty. It also has an emotional value to the staff. 

But it’s not the first theft. Also, a milk jug and candlestick have gone missing in recent weeks. Staff wonder if they’re connected. 

The police are investigating and the museum may install cameras.
