5,000-pound Bridge Stolen In Suburban Detroit

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (AP) – A Michigan man says his family’s 5,000-pound footbridge has been stolen from his property in suburban Detroit.

Robert Cortis filed a police report Wednesday saying the 40-foot bridge is made of steel and wood, and that it was stolen from his property in Farmington Hills.

Cortis says he discovered the bridge was missing when he stopped by his property near 8 Mile Road with plans to move the bridge this week. He planned to set it up at his catering business as a place to take wedding photos.

Cortis says the bridge has sentimental value because his father built it decades ago. He says whoever has it can return it with no questions asked.
