NEWARK - Eight manhole covers were stolen from the streets of Newark early Friday morning.

Police say the thief must have a lot of upper body strength because the covers are made of cast-iron and are extremely heavy.

It is believed that the covers were taken to sell for scrap, police say.

Mayor Cory Booker says investigators will work with scrap dealers to catch the thieves. So far, no arrests have been made.
