The Union County Sheriff’s Office in Marysville, Ohio, is on the lookout for a stolen roller coaster.

Crime certainly has its ups and downs. And a recent theft in Ohio just goes to prove it.

Police in Marysville, Ohio, were called to investigate the theft of a roller coaster from the Union County Fairgrounds.

The stolen ride — the Go-Gator — is a kiddie coaster, described as a moderate thrill ride with six cars with small passengers (height requirement of 36 inches).


The Union County Sheriff’s Office in Marysville, Ohio, posted about the crime on Facebook, writing “The roller coaster was on a purple and green trailer and has alligator-designed train cars, about 20 ft. total length.”

Police are trying track down the culprit — or culprits. According to the report, whoever made off with it was driving a white Dodge RAM 2500 with Maine plates and was hauling the stolen trailer.

Luckily for police, a traffic camera snagged a photo of the truck — and the stolen roller coaster.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
