NORWALK, Conn. — Copper fittings were stolen off piping at the ice rink at Veterans Park in Norwalk, which will delay the opening of the rink for several weeks, according to the Hour.
The piping is laid under the rink at the park, and is needed to maintain the temperature of the ice, according to the Hour. The copper fittings were discovered to have been stolen last week, when workers found slash marks and cuts on the pipes, the Hour reported.
The rink had been scheduled to be opened on Oct. 15, but because of the theft that will have to be delayed, according to the Hour. Replacement pipes have been ordered from Canada, and officials are hoping to have them repaired within the next couple of weeks, according to the Hour.
Police told the Hour that they are investigating the theft.
