Thief steals Boy Scout trailer filled with camping gear

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – Who would steal a trailer filled with camping equipment from a Boy Scout troop?

That’s the question police in Portland are asking tonight.

6 News has learned that a trailer filled with camping gear that had been parked on Lansing’s northwest side was stolen sometime last week.

The scoutmaster posted a picture of the missing trailer on Facebook.

Then today he got a phone call from the Portland Police telling him that the trailer, now empty, had been found.

A man told officers that he had purchased the trailer from another man after seeing for sale on Facebook.

Now the search is on for the person who sold the trailer.

And the missing camping equipment?

That gear, valued at thousands of dollars, may be long gone.

6 News has been with the scouts and Portland Police and will update the story online and on 6 News at 11 tonight.
