Fisherman reels in purse reported stolen

A fisherman at a Sayers Dam boat dock off Mill Street in Howard made an unexpected catch.

The fisherman pulled up a purse that police say was taken Thursday from an unlocked vehicle on West Main Street.

The purse had been reported stolen by a Howard woman.

The fisherman did not find the $28 in cash she said had been in the purse.

Anyone with information is asked to contact state police at Rockview at 355-7545.
