WESTPORT ISLAND — Maine officials are thanking a 9-year-old boy who found a safe that had been stolen from the Colonial Pemaquid historic site in Bristol.

The Department of Agriculture Conservation and Forestry’s parks and public lands director Will Harris will meet Garrett Pinkham in Westport on Saturday. The department says they will then go to where Pinkham found the safe on the riverbank of the Sheepscot River while he was playing there last month.

Garrett’s mother, Alice Cromwell, told The Times Record that the safe contained cash, a few rare coins, bank notes and 2014 state park passes.

The burglary remains under investigation.
