MOUNT WOLF, Pa. (AP) - October 22, 2010

Officers with the Northeast Regional Police Department in York County aren't sure who has made off with about five of the heavy steel grates in Mount Wolf and East Manchester Township.

Chief Bryan Rizzo tells The York Dispatch that pedestrians and animals could be hurt or vehicles could become stuck if they encounter an uncovered drain.

Rizzo says the 150- to 200-pound grates are likely being sold for scrap. They cost about $230 each to replace.
