RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Investigators are seeking information about a man they say took more than $500 for a playground, but did not deliver the product.

The Richland County Sheriff's Department hopes the community can provide information about 45-year-old Marino McGloster.

Investigators said McGloster, who was employed at Rainbow Play Systems, accepted $260 as a down payment for a playground system from a resident on Arrowwood Road on April 19.

McGloster returned to the home twice more to collect an additional $300, deputies said.

He is accused of keeping all the money for himself.

Investigators said McGloster faces a charge of breach of trust and may face additional charges once he is taken into custody.

If you have any information about McGloster's whereabouts, you are urged to contact Crimestoppers in any of the following ways: Call 1-888-CRIME SC (888-274-6372), Text TIPSC plus your tip info to CRIMES (274637), visit www.midlandscrimestoppers.com and email a tip. Your identity will be kept anonymous, and if your tip leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
