Mrs. Brieske found the badge while digging in her garden. Despite being buried for years, it still has traces of nickel plating and the copper figure is as good as new. Chief Webb said a quick check of police records failed to show who might have owned the badge or which officer may have lived at the Madison street address years ago.
