Town regains stolen images of Armstrong

WAPAKONETA, Ohio - The police chief in Neil Armstrong's Ohio hometown said three portraits of the astronaut stolen from the local post office have been recovered.

Wapakoneta Chief David Webb would not say yesterday how police found the print and two enlarged photographs of Mr. Armstrong, who became the first person to walk on the moon in 1969. Chief Webb said the pictures have been put back up and authorities have identified a suspect, who is in custody on an unrelated case. No charges in the theft have been filed.

Employees arriving for work Monday noticed the images of Mr. Armstrong were missing at the post office in Wapakoneta, about 50 miles north of Dayton.

Postmaster Jennifer Shoup said someone apparently ran off with the portraits from the unlocked lobby sometime last Friday.
