Someone "craned" for attention in stealing a bridge from a local park.

According to police in Akron, Ohio, that person is 63-year-old David Bramley, arrested Friday on charges of felony theft.


"Detectives discovered that Bramley, who formally worked in the Akron area, paid a local trucking company for a crane service. The crane was later used to place the bridge on and off a vehicle that transported it to the Medina County property," said the Akron Police Department in a press statement.

The bridge in question was 58 feet long, 10 feet wide, and 6 feet high. Local officials reported that the bridge had suddenly disappeared without notice in mid-December and asked for tips or information about the thieves.


Those tips allowed police to identify Bramley as a suspect. Upon investigating his property, police said they found the bridge partially disassembled. Bramley has not commented on whether he committed the crime.

"Members of the Akron Police Department work tirelessly every day to foster and strengthen relationships while enhancing public trust throughout the community," the police said on Facebook. "Utilizing the spirit of those partnerships, detectives, along with law enforcement personnel from neighboring jurisdictions, were able to help locate the stolen bridge and bring this investigation to a close."
