Cape Girardeau police are seeking the public's help to find a man suspected of stealing a sword Thursday from a local antique store. A report came in Thursday evening about a man who came into Annie Laurie's on Broadway, about 5:45 p.m. and looked at a military-type sword with a gold handle several times. Cape Police Public information officer Darin Hickey says surveillance video showed the suspect -- described as a male with tattoos around his neck area, wearing a black hoodie, ball cap and jeans -- appeared to place the sword down his pants and walk out of the store. Call 335-6621 with information.
