The woman accused of stealing a $3 million rare bust of Benjamin Franklin from a home in Brywn Mawr back in August was charged Thursday.

United States Attorney Zane David Memeger says 46-year-old Andrea Lawton of Mobile, Alabama was charged by indictment with one count of interstate transportation of stolen property and one count of concealing stolen property.
