Frederick, Md., Police Try to Find Stolen Fossil

Frederick (AP)-Police in Frederick are asking people to keep their eye peeled for a hot rock with a prehistoric pedigree.

It's a trilobite (TRY'-leh-bite) fossil, stolen Saturday from a display case at the downtown Earthly Elements rock shop.

Shop owner Richard Constant Bailey says the four-inch fossil, valued at nearly $490, is a collector's piece. He says it was found in the northern Sahara and is about 400 million years old.

Bailey says it's the best quality trilobite he's ever had in his store.
