Several Stolen Medals Recovered For East Texas Marine

Some good news for an East Texas marine whose medals went missing with his car when it was stolen last week.

Several of 20-year-old Blake Weller's medals are now at the Tyler Police Department. Police said they received a call Wednesday night from a young child saying the medals were in a mailbox.

Police traced the call back to a phone booth in Tyler and later found the medals wrapped in a plastic bag, stuffed in a mailbox across the street.

Weller's car has already been returned to him, but so far his purple heart and uniform are still missing.
