ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) - Police are trying to figure out who owns some jewelry found inside a new purse a woman purchased from a central Pennsylvania department store.

Logan Township police Chief Tim Mercer says much of the jewelry was high quality and obviously “used” so police believe a woman may have purchased the handbag, began to stock it with belongings, then forgot about the jewels when she returned it.

Whatever happened, the jewels were in the purse when another woman purchased it from the Boscov’s store in Logan Town Center on March 12. The mall is near Altoona, about 85 miles east of Pittsburgh.

Police say the woman who bought the purse discovered the jewels and turned them into police on Sunday.

The jewelry includes rings, necklaces, bracelets and watches.
