Collectibles recovered

A cache of collectibles estimated to be worth $88,000 were recovered Monday by Oyster Creek police.

OYSTER CREEK — About $88,000 of collectible toy cars are back in the hands of their rightful owner after a suspect in their theft told Oyster Creek and Freeport police where to find them, authorities said.

“There were thousands of these little cars like Hot Wheels and Matchbox,” Oyster Creek Police Sgt. Tony Standley said. “It was a huge collection and it took about four truckloads to return them to his house.”
