A gun found almost 3,000 miles away was returned to its owner Monday, over 33 years after it was stolen from a Jamestown home.

Police found the Ruger Blackhawk .44 magnum pistol in tiny Clatskanie, Ore., after someone tried to sell it to a gun store in late 2007. A check on the serial number revealed the gun’s rightful owner was Fred Brown of Jamestown.
