After nearly two weeks missing, police have recovered a stolen trailer belonging to a local boy scout troop, Patch has learned.
We first reported the theft on March 11, when the troop reached out for the public's assistance in finding the missing item, which was "...filled with camping gear, flags and miscellaneous Boy Scout equipment," according to the sheriff's department.
Wildomar Councilwoman Bridgette Moore, who is the treasurer for the group, says the trailer, along with some of the equipment, was recovered Thursday night.
"We still can't discuss any of the details, but the police said we could release that it was recovered last night," she said Friday, adding that, to her knowledge, the theft is still under investigation.
Moore said that she was beginning to worry that the trailer would not be found as time passed.
"I can't believe it, I'm just in shock," she said. "[The boy scouts] are just so excited, they cheered."
She said the the trailer does have some damage, and that the organization is doing inventory to see what items may still be missing.
"We're just so happy its back," she said. "Thank you to the police, community and everyone involved [in the search]."
