Carnival Roller Coaster Stolen From Ohio Fairgrounds, Spurring Search for Thief

Authorities in Union County, Ohio, are looking for the person or people who stole a roller coaster from the fairgrounds, KTLA sister station WJW in Cleveland reported Wednesday.

The Go-Gator carnival coaster was reported stolen from the Union County Fairgrounds in Marysville on Aug. 29,  according to a news release posted to the Union County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.

The roller coaster was on a purple and green trailer, and has alligator-designed train cars which are about 20 feet total in length.

The sheriff’s office said the trailer had a rear license plate, 22-1246A, registered in Maine.

Authorities are looking for help in identifying a white pickup truck — a Dodge RAM 2500 (or larger) model with a flat bed, that has no visible front plate, and was captured on a traffic camera the day before the ride was stolen.
