Man charged in Newark in theft of girl's whirligig

NEWARK, Calif.

A neighbor donated a rainbow-colored whirligig, featuring a pink piglet, to the girl after someone stole hers out of the family's front yard.

She is challenged by autism and the ornament was her favorite toy.

Following a two-month investigation, police have arrested a man who they say confessed to the theft.
