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 says 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.
