Tennis court net is cut down in dark of night
Staff at Washington Market Park came one morning in September to discover the net at the tennis court had been cut off and stolen, clearly over the night before. But then in an even odder twist, it was found behind the shed they use for storing planting material, wedged alongside the BMCC retaining wall.
By then Parks central had replaced the net, so they were left with a damaged one discarded on their own property.
BMCC cameras mounted above the court recorded this footage of the culprit a little after 8p on Sept. 19. The man takes about 15 minutes to cut down the net, roll it up and exit, net in tow.
This has to be one of the odder happenings in Washington Market Park…
