The Toledo Harbor Lighthouse Preservation Society is offering a $500 reward for the arrest and conviction of Lake Erie pirates.
According to Sandy Bihn, the society's president, the dock and ramp at the lighthouse were stolen between April 9 and Sunday.
Both cost nearly $40,000 and were installed in October so that the public could see the restoration work on the lighthouse.
The dock and ramp would have required gear to dismantle and a large boat to cart away, Ms. Bihn said.
The society asks those with information to call Lucas County sheriff's detectives.
