NORTH BEAVER TOWNSHIP, Pa., Oct. 6 (UPI) -- Police in Pennsylvania are investigating the case of a stolen bridge, presumably dismantled to be sold as scrap metal.
The North Beaver Township bridge, made of corrugated steel and valued at about $100,000, was stolen sometime between Sept. 27 and Wednesday, the Ellwood City (Pa.) Ledger reported Thursday.
The 50-foot-long, 20-foot-wide bridge was near a railroad line in a wooded area not owned by the township. Its owner's name was not released.
Police say the thief or thieves used a cutting torch to take the bridge apart.
