Boy Scout Troop 43’s trailer was found this weekend in Dumfries, by Prince William police.
The trailer was stolen from the River of Grace Lutheran Church at the corner of Minnieville Road and Route 234 between Monday and Tuesday, with more than $10,000 worth of camping equipment inside.
According to troop leader Roger Henderson, the trailer was found on the side of Barrons Heights Road in Dumfries. It was damaged and mostly empty, according to Henderson.
“The hasps were busted off the doors, the locks were cut…and then stuff was taken out of the trailer. Pretty much all of the tents were gone,” said Henderson.
Troop 43 is going to be doing a full inventory this week, to assess exactly how much equipment was stolen.
“I’ve had tons of people offering to make equipment donations, and other troops have offered to lend us gear…and that’s been great,” said Henderson.
For Henderson, the trailer being found is somewhat bittersweet.
“It’s definitely a relief, and it’s not a total loss, we’re just trying to ascertain how much. And there will definitely be some time and some work that goes into fixing it,” said Henderson.
Prince William police have no leads on who took the trailer, according to Henderson.
