ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. — St. Louis Park police and the owner of a trailer containing donated goods are asking for help locating it after it was stolen from a church.
The owner of the trailer, Suzie White, told police it was last seen at about 1 p.m. on Aug. 18 at Union Congregational United Church. White says they were going to loan it to a family member who was moving, went to the church to remove donated items stored inside and found the trailer was missing.
The trailer was used to store and transport donations from the church congregation, including school backpacks and adult and youth clothing. The church has partnered for years with the St. Stephen's Human Services Free Store, which is held every year around Thanksgiving.
White says it's the second trailer they've had stolen from the church lot.
The Stealth-brand, 6-by-12 trailer has a ramp door and V-shaped front. It has a partial diamond-plate exterior, upgraded mag wheels and rims, and interior storage rails to secure loaded items.
"I know it's a scant chance we can get our trailer back, but if anyone knows anything about it, boy it would be a blessing to have it back," White told KARE 11.
Anyone with information is asked to call the St. Louis Park Police Department at 952-924-2618.
