How the thieves managed to cart away the 1-ton cannon is a mystery.By Katherine Biek | May 13, 2016
A World War I-era cannon has been recovered after it was swiped from Veterans Memorial Hall in Richmond, California.
The brass and iron cannon, which was stolen May 1, weighs about a ton. It sat outside the building for almost 70 years.
After a KNTV news report about the missing cannon aired, an unidentified man from a neighboring city called the Richmond Police Department saying the stolen piece of history was sitting in his front yard.
