Manhole Covers Stolen In Paterson

16 11 2009

Paterson, NJ – There’s a new mystery in one New Jersey city: Who took 60 manhole covers from a public works yard?

Paterson authorities say the 200-pound cast iron pieces disappeared.
No arrests have been made. Police say it might be hard because the covers could already have been melted down.

A city councilman confirmed that public works employees are under investigation.

A scrap yard owner tells The Record of Bergen County that two uniformed employees of the city’s public works department sold him some covers.

The covers can sell for between $10 and $20 each.
