Two children are believed to have stolen and scattered 2,500 rubber ducks from the Citizens Police Academy in southwest suburban Yorkville.

The ducks are used for the annual Duck Pluck event, which is a major fundraiser for the academy. After the theft, the rubber ducks were scattered all over Kendall County, according to police.

The case has been referred to prosecutors for charges. If charges are filed, the suspects' names will not be released since they are both under 18.
