It didn't take long for the owner of a stolen bronze plaque to come forward after lawmen released a picture of it to the news media.
Wayne County deputies distributed a picture Friday morning of the plaque that turned up at a local metal recycler and within an hour the owner came forward.
The plaque is titled: "The Guardian of Fallen Firefighter and Emergency Medical Workers." It is then followed by a short pledge to those who have died.
Major Tom Effler says it was a display plaque for a local funeral home. Deputies are still looking for those who took it.
