DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton Police are looking for two people who stole red wagons from Dayton Children’s hospital.

Officers responded to the hospital around 7:46 p.m. on Wednesday after a 64-year-old woman reported she spotted a woman and a man in the parking garage loading up two red wagons.

The hospital owns 25 red wagons and uses them to get children around the hospital.

According to a police report, hospital security guards said they don’t have surveillance of the theft.

2 NEWS checked and found similar wagons for sale for a little more than $100 each. The hospital says the wagons are donations from community members and some are in memory of children who have died.

“Kids love to see those wagons. They love to ride in them. They love going from the front doors to wherever they’re appointment may be or maybe they’re going back to surgery. We use those wagons, they’re parents use them to get them in the car safely and they can head home,” said Bethany Deines, Dayton Children’s director of annual giving.

The hospital does not accept old wagons.
