NEWPORT CITY â€“ Police are looking for the person who stole an Army Ruck Sack from a U.S. Veteran who served in Afghanistan last year. Kurt Geib noticed the pack missing from his home Tuesday. The bag, issued by the Army, contained mostly warm weather gear.
Geib, a chaplain, said the bag also contained a personal Bible. The items have a â€śprice tagâ€ť but he wasnâ€™t sure of the exact value. The items are property of the Army, not Geib. The bag was located in Geibâ€™s garage and the thief stole nothing else.
Anyone with information of the theft is asked to contact the Newport City Police at 334-6733.
Geib, who works at the National Guard Armory in Newport, said the thief can return the items to him with no questions asked. â€śAll is forgiven,â€ť he said. â€śI just want everything back. Iâ€™d appreciate it.â€ť
