• Boy Scout Trailer Recovered

Great News, the stolen Boy Scout trailer

has been recovered, as has most of their gear.

As many of you know, a trailer was discovered to have been stolen from Wildomar Troop 332 on March 11, 2014, from the VFW parking lot. Some in the community were asking if it had been in a fenced area. Look at the pics to see for yourself that it wasn't just sitting out in the middle of nowhere. It's usual spot was under the low hanging tree that is fenced on three sides plus driveway gate, and well off the main road.

The downside is that is that it was vandalized and some of their gear wasn't recovered (including some EZ Ups and a wagon on the list). Take look at the following pictures to see what the thieves did.

The inside of the trailer, where shelving units had been installed and now were thrown to the floor.

The side of the trailer where the thieves removed a large portion of the sheet metal siding,
trying to remove Troop 332's markings. You can see what it looked like before the theft in the inset above.

Where the thieves couldn't figure out how to work a spray can and decided to cut the Troop's name off the side.

On this side, the thieves used a grinder to get rid of the Troop's markings. 

Some of the recovered gear. You can see where they vandalized one of the boxes (on the left).

What's left of the troop's flag. The hooks on top used to hold ribbons
won throughout the years. All destroyed by worthless people.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            There is a lot more to the story. The who, why, where, when of it all, but the detective in charge made it pretty clear that such things can't be released at this point in time. Hopefully more details will be released soon. In the meantime, it's nice that the trailer is back with the troop, and they'll be able to clean it up and restore it.

  1. Praying that the thieves are brought to justice. They need to pay restitution and learn something about service to others. Our community should come together and get some new camping supplies for these scouts.


Let's hear what you have to say... for other inquiries try the email listed under "view my complete profile" but if you want to discuss a blog topic, I'll only do it in this comment section, not by email.
