DELHI, Ohio (Angela Ingram) -- David Neiheisel has taken this gun apart and put it back together numerous times.It's a prized-possession.He says, This is a wooden holster, it's also a left handed gun. The Broomhandle Mauser was just recently returned. Someone stole it, along with nine other guns, from his Delhi home.Neiheisel says, In 1991 I had an employee out there doing some work, he saw three or four guns, stole them. Found out who he was he had already sold them and everything else. For 22 years Dave looked for his firearm at gun shows. It's an heirloom, manufactured in 1914. His father, Paul Neiheisel, served in the army during World War II and brought it home. Oh my dad would be 108 years old today he was 30 something years old when they drafted him and he went over. Police kept looking for the weapon; they arrested the thief, but could never find the guns. Dave gave them the serial numbers. Police put the numbers into a law enforcement database called the National Crime Information Center. Then a few days ago someone pawned Dave's gun. The leads online program alerted police that the gun was at a Covington shop.Dave said, When I picked the gun up, I got choked up and I might even get choked up here talking. Its a memory you never want to lose and you never thought you'd ever get it back. So it was really, really a special time when I got the gun back. Years have passed but not Daves love for his dad's old gun.Never give up. If something like that happens, never give up.
