TROUTDALE, Ore. – Two airplane propellers were stolen from the Troutdale airport Tuesday and a Good Samaritan helped police quickly track it down.

The Good Samaritan saw a propeller in the back of a truck and thought it seemed odd. So he called 911, not even knowing about the theft several miles away.

Investigators pulled over that truck a short time later and found two propellers inside. Their owner was called to the scene to identify them, and police returned the propellers to him.

Three suspects, 31-year-old Donald Paul Olson (L), 44-year-old Michael John Anderson (C) and 30-year-old Stefanie Nicole Anderson (R), were jailed on theft charges.
