TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Scarecrows fashioned after Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Jerry Garcia and Jimi Hendrix to promote a rock 'n' roll exhibit were stolen from the front of the Mary Brogan Museum of Art and Science.

"They took everything but Jimi Hendrix's head and Elvis' blue suede shoes," said Chucha Barber, the museum's director of institutional advancement.

Barber said the scarecrows — crafted from straw, Styrofoam and old clothing — were worth $300.
