Stolen bounce house returned to fraternity

A children’s birthday party staple disappeared from a fraternity lawn over the weekend.

According to State College police, a “commercial-grade bounce house” went missing Sunday from the front yard of Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity, 240 E. Prospect Ave. The inflatable play structure, rented from Best Event Rentals, was reported stolen around 10 a.m.

Police reported Monday afternoon that the bounce house had been returned to the fraternity. No charges are being pressed, they said.
