Rhode Island police investigate theft of railroad tracks

(The following appeared on the Boston Globe website on June 6, 2011.)

NEWPORT, R.I.—State police say someone has stolen about 32-feet of railroad track from the Newport Secondary Line in Portsmouth.

State police Capt. Raymond Studley tells the Newport Daily News that the thieves apparently used a cutting torch to remove 22 feet of rails from the south side of the tracks and another 10 feet from the north side of the line over the Memorial Day weekend. The tracks are owned by the state Department of Transportation.
