MUSKEGON, Mich. — Officials say a man has stolen artifacts from a western Michigan museum housed on a World War II-era warship.
Museum officials say the theft of medals, a shoulder patch, lapel pins and other items occurred Aug. 3.
Police say they have a surveillance image of a middle-aged man they seek to identify and interview.
The museum aims to have the gun lifted onto the ship ahead of its celebration of the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
Museum board member John Stephenson says some of the stolen items are “not worth much, but they’re priceless.”
