A playground left in ruins. Police say thieves stole equipment for a children’s center in Newark. Daycare officials didn’t notice the items were missing until the snow melted. Now it is going to cost thousands of dollars to replace it.
There are just plastic accessories left at the Candy Apple Children’s Center in Newark. All the metal parts needed to connect the playground are gone.
The director of the childcare center says it was just noticed about a week and a half ago that some of the parts were missing. It had been covered under a mountain of snow. Police think someone stole the metal and sold it at a scrap yard.
