    WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) - All kinds of things turn up when Velas Diving and Supply holds diving classes under water. But there has never been a find like the one that occurred Sunday in Wheeling Creek, said Ted Velas, owner of the company.

    Dive master Joe Carney found three safes and six cash drawers at the bottom of the creek while he and another dive master were training a student.

    The items were located about 5 feet from the creek bank and 3 feet under water on a ledge, according to Wheeling Police Department reports.

    A money bag found in one safe belonged to a Wheeling business and the items could be connected to a series of breaking and enterings, according to police reports.

    "It feels good to help the police recover things," Velas said.

    While no money was recovered, the items found will be evidence that could help with the investigation, Wheeling police Lt. Randy Rejonis said Monday.
