This little piggy had $600. Its rightful owner now has none.

A pink ceramic piggy bank filled with quarters, dollar coins and some bills was stolen from the counter of the Smokehouse Deli, the owner reported Friday.

The 8-inch tall pig weighed about 30 pounds and was filled about halfway with personal change, owner Beth Borgmann said Saturday.

Lincoln police had no suspects, but believed the pig was stolen sometime Wednesday evening or early Thursday, Capt. Genelle Moore said.

“It was just my personal loose change,” Borgmann said. “That was my vacation money.”

Borgmann said she had spent between one and a half and two years avidly filling the bank. She had planned to visit the Bay Islands of Honduras, where she has a house, she said.

“It’s hard to get away when you run your own business,” Borgmann said.
