AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - Scout Master Todd Sandt, of Auburn Troop 15, had to tell his group of 37 boys this week their trailer full of equipment had been stolen from the parking lot of Grace United Methodist Church.
"I thought someone had borrowed the trailer maybe to work on it, but through the process of elimination we found it was stolen," Sandt said.
The standard 12-foot, single axle white trailer was taken within the last week and contains $3,000 worth of equipment used for troop trips, including one scheduled for this weekend.
"It was kind of disheartening to come out here for a camp out and realize or trailer had been taken," assistant Troop Master Graham Hurley said.
"We use it for our monthly camp outs and it includes tents, equipment, stoves, propane tanks, tables, just everything you need to take on a camping trip," Sandt said.
