NEWPORT CITY – 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 “price tag” but he wasn’t sure of the exact value. The items are property of the Army, not Geib. The bag was located in Geib’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. “All is forgiven,” he said. “I just want everything back. I’d appreciate it.”
