MARENGO – A loaded ammunition clip reported stolen in Marengo on Tuesday was found at a nearby elementary school the same day, according to the Marengo Police Department.
Police received a report that several items were stolen from an unlocked vehicle parked across the street from Locust School during the early morning hours Tuesday, police Chief Joseph Hallman said. Items stolen included a loaded ammunition clip.
A student found the clip during school hours on Tuesday and reported it to school staff, Hallman said. The clip was the item reported stolen.
“Of course the location of the magazine has created some concern, but it has nothing to do with the school,” Hallman said in a statement.
