KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Investigators hope money will lead them to a pair of stolen WWI aircraft engines. Crime Stoppers said money has been added and the reward for information in the case is now up to $5,000.

The parts belong to a man who was driving from Texas to Minnesota and stopped at a Kansas City hotel for night last week. When he got up the next morning, his truck and the engines were gone.
