The Livingston County' Sheriff's office on Thursday received an unusual call to assist a large corporation, as a rare item was found on an Internet Auction site and listed from a location in Livingston County.

That item was reported to be one of maybe four such items in the United States and is used for a specific function in a nuclear plant or device.

The area resident reported buying this along with many other items in a salvage sale at a location in the city and has verification, acccording to Sheriff Steve Cox.

The corporation has no suspicions that the area resident illegally obtained the item, although it is reported to still belong to the company.

Discussions are taking place to return the item at the corporations cost.
