Earlier this month, ice skaters and hockey players got a jump on outdoor skating at the Legion Way rink as temperatures plunged below freezing. And just as the weather started to grow warmer on Friday, Dec. 20, volunteers noticed a goal — valued at $125 — had been stolen.
A volunteer called police at 1 p.m. on Dec. 20 to report the theft. Prior to the thaw, a volunteer also noticed that vandals had marked the surface of the ice with an obscene image.
“Makes me start to think, is it really worth doing this anymore?” wrote a volunteer in an email to The Times.
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to call Barrington police at 437-3930.
