Police said on Tuesday that they were searching for the person who broke into President Warren G. Harding's home and stole a dog collar.
Police received a call of a break-in shortly before 8 a.m. at the home, located at 380 Mount Vernon Ave.
According to investigators, the burglar used a ladder to get inside a second-floor window.
The dog collar that was dated from 1923 was made for Harding's Airedale Terrier. It was on display in the home. The dog's name "Laddie Boy" is engraved in raised letters on the center of the collar.
In a heart shape on one side of the name are the words "From Alaska's Golden Heart." In one heart on the other side of the name is "Fairbanks July 16th 1923." The metal pendants and decorations on the collar were made from pure gold, police said.
According to investigators, the incident was the first to have occurred to the Harding Home since at least the early 1990s.
Police said that it was not immediately clear whether the home was targeted by someone wanting to access historical sites.
Harding was the 29th U.S. president and previously served in the Ohio Senate, Lieutenant Governor and U.S. Senator. He was in office from March 4, 1921 until his sudden death on Aug. 2, 1923.
Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to contact Marion police at 740-387-2525 or call an anonymous tip line at 740-387-8477.
