MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) — Officials say a man has stolen artifacts from a western Michigan museum housed on a World War II-era warship.

The Muskegon Chronicle reported Wednesday the man stole about a dozen items from the USS LST 393 Veterans Museum in Muskegon. Museum officials say the theft of medals, a shoulder patch, lapel pins and other items occurred Aug. 3.

Police say they have a surveillance image of a middle-aged man they seek to identify and interview.

Museum board member John Stephenson says some of the stolen items are "not worth much, but they're priceless."
