Campground fire rings stolen, reward offered

MAMMOTH SPRING, AR (KAIT) - The Mammoth Spring Campground is offering a reward for information regarding the theft of 15 fire rings.

According to the campground owner, the theft happened on December 9th.  Each ring weighs about 60 pounds.  Owner Bill Traw believes the person or persons responsible could have taken the fire pits using a trailer that was stolen the same night.

Traw says he drove by a scrap metal dealer in Thayer to see if the pits were there, they were not.  He tells Region 8 News the theft really hurts his business, "...when we got them a few years ago they were $25 a piece so we would be replacing 15 of them at $25 a piece or higher now. We're a small business we can't stand a loss like that."

The campground does have security cameras and the business is offering a $100 reward for information leading to the conviction of the thieves.
