SPENCER (WBZ) ― Police in Spencer are investigating the apparent theft of 45 sections of aluminum bleachers from the Spencer Fairgrounds.

Members of the Spencer Trotters Club noticed the theft early Friday morning as they prepared to exercise their horses, and police suspect the metal was stolen and sold as scrap.

Sgt. Michael Befford told the Telegram & Gazette the thieves probably parked a truck in the graveyard next to the fairgrounds where a hole was cut in the chain link fence. The cuplrits raked the track to erase their footprints. He says some bleacher sections were 14 1/2-feet long.

Fair president E. Allan Walker says he's not sure how much it will cost to replace the 2-year-old bleachers, but he's hoping insurance will cover it. He says the fair is initiating new security measures.
