Found: One prosthetic leg

GLASSPORT — Police in one western Pennsylvania borough are working on an unusual lost-and-found case involving a prosthetic leg.

Glassport police Lt. Ron Benoit tells KDKA-TV that investigators haven't been able to determine whether the artificial limb was lost or stolen since a motorist found it lying along a road June 21.

Police know the limb's serial number and say it was manufactured by Hanger Inc., a leading manufacturer of prosthetics.

The lieutenant says, "It's an expensive piece of medical equipment. We'd like to get it back to its rightful owner."
