Lake Eola camera system was not working night of swan theft

- FOX 35 has learned new information in the case of six swans stolen in Lake Eola.

The City of Orlando admits that their cameras that are located throughout Lake Eola park were not working on Monday, April 11th, the night the baby swans were stolen.

In fact, the cameras haven't been working all year.

The city admits that as early as last year they knew the cameras were not in operation and they're blaming frequent power outages for the cameras not working.

As far as the timetable for repairing them, the city is still working on that.

The six baby swans are still gone without any indication on where they might be.

PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person, or persons, responsible for stealing baby swans from Lake Eola Park in Downtown Orlando.

Stealing a swan is a felony offense in Florida.  Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the Orlando Police Department toll-free at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477), and the baby swans can be dropped off at the city's Eola House, "no questions asked."
