     HOPKINTON, Iowa (AP) - Law enforcement officials in northeastern Iowa are on the lookout for some hot artifacts and antiques.
    Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports  that someone broke into the Delaware County Historical Society's building in Hopkinton on Wednesday night and stole several items dating back to the 1800s.
    The items include about 40 arrowheads, a silver tea set and Native American moccasins and a vest.
