Man in Pa. welfare office had stolen bow

UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) - August 16, 2011

Police in Uniontown tell the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the bow was stolen Friday morning from a Woodlands World store in that city about 40 miles south of Pittsburgh.

A short time later, police say the man stopped in the welfare office to look up some information and asked a caseworker to hold the bow while he did that. The caseworker thought it was odd that the bow still had the price tag on it and a welfare worker who used to work at the sporting goods store also noticed the item and called the store to report the incident.

Police hope to identify the man from the store's security video.
