PARKERSBURG (AP) — All of the bayonets, guns and other items stolen during a break-in are back at the Veterans Museum of the Mid-Ohio Valley.
The Parkersburg Police Department says a boy playing in an abandoned house last week found a duffel bag containing several knives and a crowbar. Three stolen bayonets and five knives were recovered.
Uniforms, guns and other items stolen during the December break-in were recovered earlier.
Museum director Gary Farris tells the Parkersburg News and Sentinel that the items will be cleaned and put back on display in the next few weeks.
Since the break-in, Farris says the community has donated new items to the museum, including grenades and a World War II Japanese officer’s sword.
The investigation of the break-in continues.
