MARYSVILLE, Ohio — The Union County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a case of roller coaster theft.
You read that right. Someone who doesn't care about children, or their joy and happiness stole a Go-Gator kiddie roller coaster from the county fairgrounds last month.
The ride is a miniature coaster featuring multiple train cars that total around 20 feet in length.
