AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Police say an Emmy award and other collectibles have been stolen from the home of a late Ohio filmmaker.

Akron police say the items were reported missing from the home of Paul Jacoway last month. Among the stolen items were an Emmy, two Telly awards, and framed gold records from Tina Turner and Corey Hart that Jacoway received while working at Capitol Records.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1Go72pc ) 55-year-old Jacoway died March 9 of natural causes.

Jacoway’s documentary on the Knight newspaper family won a regional Emmy in 2010. He most recently taught filmmaking at the University of Akron.

Police released surveillance video from Jacoway’s apartment complex Tuesday showing four people being sought for questioning.
