LEOMINSTER (CBS) — The mayor of Leominster is looking for the “rightful owner” of a sword that may have been stolen decades ago. Mayor Dean Mazzarella posted photos to social media of the ornate sword that he said was sent to his office.

Mazzarella said the sword may have been taken from a Fitchburg home between 1976 and 1980, but he’s not “100% sure” that it was stolen. There’s writing on the blade but a magnifying glass is needed to read it.
