Pearl Harbor mementos among $30K of items taken from home

Posted: Updated:
OIL CITY, Pa. (AP) - State police say some World War II mementos from the attack on Pearl Harbor were among $30,000 worth of items taken from a western Pennsylvania home.

Troopers from the Franklin barracks say the home in Cornplanter Township was burglarized sometime between Oct. 5 and March 17, when the items were discovered missing.

Police say the war souvenirs included a Japanese Namby 8mm pistol taken from a downed fighter pilot, as well as a flight stick and altimeter from a downed Japanese plane.

Various rifles and shotguns, not related to the war, were also taken along with a drum set, keyboard and other musical equipment. Finally, police say the thieves took a coin collection, some antique fishing equipment and jewelry.

The township is about 70 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Police are publicizing the thefts in hopes of generating clues.
