Kentucky Park Without Fountain Due to Copper Thieves

July 3, 2014

A Lexington, Ky., park will be without a fountain for a few days after thieves took 23 copper fountain heads.

The Lexington Herald Leader reports the Division of Parks and Recreation shut off the water feature at Thoroughbred Park so repairs could be made.

Police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said there are no suspects because no one saw the theft occur.

Roberts said there was at least $10,000 worth of damage, though the Parks and Recreation department was trying to determine an exact amount.

Phillip Bryant was working on the fountain Monday, and said he hoped to have it up and running in time for the Fourth of July.
