ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Missouri state treasurer hopes some online assistance will help his office track down the rightful owners or family heirs of more than 120 abandoned military medals.

Treasurer Clint Zweifel came to St. Louis Wednesday morning to promote a new state law that allows him to publicly share the names, last known addresses and other identifying information of possible medal owners.

The unclaimed property includes three Purple Heart medals, one of the highest military honors.

Details about the unclaimed medals can be found at the state treasurer's website.

Another member of the St. Louis County Police Board is stepping down.

On the heels of the resignations of board chairman Gregory Sansone and vice chairman Floyd Warmann, Ray Wagner says he will leave the police board by late September.

Ray Wagner's departure leaves just two members on the five member board. The board has been embroiled in an investigation looking into any improprieties surrounding the awarding of construction contracts for the new St. Louis County crime lab. Meanwhile, the St. Louis County Council postponed approving two of County Executive Charlie Dooley's police board nominees.

The Council met Tuesday night and instead of moving forward with confirmations decided to put that on hold and introduce legislation requiring police board members to undergo background checks. The meeting was then adjourned without taking any further action.

Three St. Louis residents are in custody for alleged election offenses.

The prosecutor says Jerrell Sherod, Rachelle Olive, and Andrew Schafer committed potential voting fraud. The allegations stem from a possible improper request for absentee ballots. Schafer faces the most severe charges, multiple election offenses and two counts of forgery.

Police started to investigate after they were contacted by the St. Louis County Board of Elections.
