YORKVILLE, Ill. (AP) — A flotilla of yellow rubber ducks intended for a fund-raising event has been stolen from a police academy in suburban Chicago.

The Beacon-News in Aurora says Friday that some 2,500 ducks took flight this week from the Yorkville Citizens Police Academy.

Police say several of the toy ducks have been found on a Yorkville roadway and request that any more found be returned to the academy.

Police plan to use the toy ducks in their annual "Duck Pluck" to raise funds for the academy.
