Security camera footage showed five people damaging and knocking over items at the mini golf course around 3 a.m. Thursday.

Owner Nick Geracimos said he noticed the destruction when he went into work around 8 a.m. 

"I noticed one of the dinosaurs was down right over here, in the middle was laying down on the ground. So I went and picked it up and then I noticed another one, and another one. Then I realized all of them were down except for the big ones," Geracimos said.

After checking the surveillance videos, he realized two people lifted a smaller dinosaur over the fence and left the golf course. 

"I was wondering if I'd ever see that thing again haha I was like, well it is June and there's a bunch of kids in town, but still never thought that would actually happen. Stealing a dinosaur seems kind of crazy," Geracimos said. 

Geracimos filed a report with the Ocean City Police Department about the dinosaur, which he said he believed was worth about $700.

Anyone with information about who was responsible for Thursday's incident should call the Ocean City Police Department at 410-723-6610.
