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.
