Rocky Mount police want the rightful owner to step up and claim a lost ladder found last week in the middle of the street.
The six-foot aluminum ladder fell out of a red truck Tuesday, said Sgt. Brad Summerlin.
"I just want to return it to the owner," Summerlin said, promising no ticket awaits whoever claims the ladder.
Other items found around the city in the past week include a Huffy bicycle on Sunset Avenue, a Schiwnn bicycle and counterfeit money on Benvenue Road, a $100 diamond ring on Kirby Drive, a machete on Pinehaven Drive and brass knuckles on Deerchase Drive.
Owners can call the Police Department or message the department's Facebook page to claim lost items.
