Police recover stolen war memorabilia from man's home

Posted: Updated:

State police say they recovered $82,000 worth of stolen property, including memorabilia from the Civil War and World War I, at a man's home in Gettysburg.

The shop owner of The Union Drummer Boy along the 100 block of West Middle Street told state police that 36-year-old Richard James Holliday was in possession of property from the store.

Troopers obtained a search warrant for Holliday's home and recovered items valued at over $82,000.

Some of those items included firearms, photographs, metals and other Civil War, World War I, World War II and Vietnam-era military items.

Holliday was arrested on Tuesday and taken to Adams County Prison for arraignment. He was charged with theft and receiving stolen property.

The investigation is continuing. Anyone who may have bought or traded items with Holliday within the past year is asked to contact the State Police Gettysburg station. The shop, along with state troopers, are looking to recover more of the stolen property.
