Monday morning at 8:07, an officer took a report of a 2022 black Carry On flat deck 18-foot trailer stolen from the 2400 block of North Main Street. Someone took it on March 2, between 11:36 pm and 11:49 pm, but the manager received a late notification due to a malfunctioning alert system. Surveillance footage shows a four-door, early to mid-2000s Chevrolet pickup truck entering the parking lot, backing up, hooking up to the trailer, and leaving. However, the video only caught the driver-side door opening, and only one individual, the driver, is seen getting out of and back into the truck. The trailer is $4,999.00.
