CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Fairfield Township police have located a trailer that was reported stolen by a local Boy Scouts troop Thursday.

The trailer belonged to Troop 984 in Fairfield Township, according to Assistant Scoutmaster Brad Schneider.

The black Wells Cargo trailer was sitting in the parking lot at Redeemer Church when it was stolen, Schneider tells FOX19 NOW.

“Last night we were meeting at the Redeemer Church for our weekly Thursday meeting when we noticed the trailer was missing,” Schneider explains. “After a few calls to make sure it wasn’t moved, it became clear it was stolen.”

The trailer is valued at $5,000 and the police report says around $4,000 worth of camping gear was inside of it.

The Fairfield Township Police Department found the trailer, and two other stolen trailers, Friday at a Store’n’Lock location. Police reportedly said the camping gear was found inside but the trailer had been repainted.

The trailer stolen Thursday came after another trailer belonging to a Boy Scouts troop was stolen this week.

A troop in North College Hill had its trailer stolen earlier Thursday. Police are searching for that one, which has an Ohio license plate of SXR9248. There is no word if that trailer is among those found Friday.

It is unknown at this time if the thefts are connected.
