ONTARIO, Ohio — Ontario police say they have recovered the trailer that was stolen from a local Boy Scouts troop.

According to the leaders of Troop 170, they discovered it was missing from a church parking lot earlier this week.

“Once we called everybody, they were like it was just unfathomable that somebody took it,” said Riki Rietschlin, who is one of the scout leaders.

The trailer is used for camp outs and housed dutch ovens, camping axes, Coleman stoves, tents and other supplies.

Reitschlin said it’s valued at about $7,000 and was visibly marked with the troop’s name on the exterior.

“We are limited on funds and I mean this was stuff that has been accumulated over I'[d say probably ten years and fifteen years maybe more,” he explained.
