Albuquerque police are asking the public to keep an eye out for military medals stolen from an 89-year-old World War II veteran.
Police say the military decorations were stolen from Roy Hopper's home during a break-in while he was hospitalized after breaking his hip.
Hopper participated in the Normandy Invasion before being captured by the Germans and spending nine months in a camp for prisoners of war.
Hopper's name is inscribed on the back of the medals. Police say they could turn up on Craigslist or at pawn shops or antique stores.
