War vet's medals swiped from legion

TORONTO -- An 85-year-old veteran is fighting mad after his five Second World War medals went missing at a Burlington, Ont., legion.

John Healey, of Oakville, Ont., had just returned to his table during a weekly gathering when he noticed his box of medals had disappeared.

"I thought one of my friends was playing a joke on me," Healey said yesterday.

He plans to "talk with his fist" if he finds the person who stole his medals.

Halton police are interviewing some of the 200 people who were there, but don't have any leads, said Det.-Sgt. Dave McCartney.
