A collection of shark teeth and fossils valued at $2,000 have been stolen from a Calvert County home, police say.I would like to think that $2000 worth would either be a lot of teeth, or some very good ones, but even large Megalodon teeth can sell for less than $100. I once saw random small worn and broken shark's teeth from Chesapeake Bay being sold at a rock shop in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for $2 each. At that price, we have a small fortune in fossils, mostly stored in jars by years. Getting over 1,000 teeth in a year is our average, and we've been at this a long time, if in a non-serious way. If only we got paid minimum wage for all the time we spent looking for them.
Investigators say the fossils were collected over the years and were taken during a burglary in Chesapeake Beach on Nov. 10.
According to police, a suspect broke the basement door and moved several items in the home around before taking the teeth and fossils.
