The Pasco Police Department said last month, officials found the missing slide mounted to a bunk bed in a child’s room in Burbank, Washington.
Police had search warrants to look for stolen catalytic converters, which are part of a vehicle’s exhaust system.
The city’s parks and recreation department has recovered the slide.
It’s unclear how the slide got from the park to the mobile home where it was found, but the child’s father has been charged with possession of stolen property, police said.
Police spokesman Sgt. Rigo Pruneda told CNN that there has been an increase of catalytic converter thefts over the past six months because the parts are easy to cut away from a car or truck and they can be sold as scrap metal.
Police did find catalytic converters during the search, but no one has been charged in connection with them.
