Police reunite Illinois State Fair visitor with lost dentures


The Illinois State Police said a visitor to the Illinois State Fair was reunited with an unusual piece of lost property — their dentures.

The ISP said in a Facebook post that a fair-goer flagged down troopers to turn over a set of “abandoned chompers” found in the Conservation World area of the fair.

The post was later updated to say the owner had been found.

“The owner has been in contact with the lost and found and should be reunited with their previously misplaced pearly whites very soon. Thank you to all that made this reunion a reality,” the post said.
