Bag Of Pot Found In Pants Donated To Pa. Charity

Posted: Updated:
SUGARCREEK, Pa. (AP) - An act of charity may end badly for one donor to a Pennsylvania Salvation Army outlet.
    
Sugarcreek Borough police say they were called when workers found a large plastic bag of marijuana among some donated clothes.
    
Police Chief Matt Carlson tells the (Oil City) Derrick (http://bit.ly/1gnLZm2 ) he suspects the owner of the drugs has noticed them missing by now, if only because the bag contained a "substantial quantity" of pot.
    
Police were working with store employees to determine who donated the clothes and when. Police say the drugs were found earlier this week.
    
The chief says this isn't the first time officers have investigated an unusual item among donated clothing saying, "we've had guns ... cash ... rings, and now marijuana."

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. NBC - A WWII veteran finally received the medals he earned while serving in Europe more than seven decades ago. 94-year-old Roscoe Kerr, Junior joined the 28th Medical Depot Company when he was 19. He was in a crash and spent several months in the hospital before being discharged. For decades, he felt like he was never part of the greatest generation because he was never officially recognized. Kerr's son-in-law wrote to the Department of Defense to try and get his medals.
