The community in Manlius was devastated by the loss of Faye's last eggs and had chipped in to generate a hefty reward of about $9,250 for information that led to the suspectâ??s arrest.
The Dazzle Store
just down the street from the swan pond began selling "Save Our Swans" t-shirts and hats for $15 with all the money going to the reward for information in the case.
The store said it will continue to sell the shirts and hats even if the reward money is claimed with 100% of the money going to efforts to keep the swans safe.
Ross B. Leone, 23, was arrested for stealing the eggs and smashing them on a side talk and wall after he had allegedly been drinking.
