CHINCOTEAGUE, Va. (AP) - Donations have boosted a reward offered for information in the theft of one Chincoteague’s famed wild ponies.

The Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company had offered a $1,000 reward in the case. The Daily Times (https://bit.ly/1NGsABA) of Salisbury, Maryland, reports that donations have increased the reward to $2,300.

Police say the pony, named Dreamer’s Faith, was stolen in September from the corral area at the Chincoteague carnival grounds.

The fire company owns and maintains the herd of wild ponies that lives on Assateague Island.

The pony had been bought in July during an annual auction that raises money for the fire company. After the auction, the pony was donated back to the fire company so it could eventually roam free with the other wild ponies.
