GARY, W.Va. (AP) - A handgun reported stolen in New York City more than 40 years ago has been recovered in West Virginia during a traffic stop.

Gary Police Chief S.P. McKinney cited the male driver last week for not wearing a seat belt and discovered that he had a loaded .357 Magnum in the vehicle.

McKinney tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph that the man had a valid Virginia concealed carry permit. But a check of the gun revealed that it was reported stolen in New York City on April 26, 1967.

McKinney says he didn't charge the man regarding the gun. He says the man didn't have any criminal involvement in that case.

He says he contacted the New York City Police Department to report that the gun had been recovered.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
