NORMAN, Oklahoma -

A Norman Boy Scout Troop is now without their trailer and gear after they say it was stolen sometime between June 4 and June 9.

Around 6:30 p.m. on June 9, Frank Canon, scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 241 in Norman, arrived to McFarlin UMC to open the weekly troop meeting. On arrival, he found the Boy Scout's trailer and gear were gone.

"We had all of our camping gear inside the trailer," said Canon. "It took years to collect enough equipment for the troop of 43 Boy Scouts."

Canon said the trailer was chained and had a lock, but the thief was well equipped for the task.

"All that was left behind was a cut link of chain and the broken lock in the bushes," Canon said.

Canon said they filed a police report, and the Boy Scouts hope to recover the equipment.

"At the moment, we are caught a little off guard, but we will do our best to recover from the set back," said Canon. "After all, our troop has a 94-year legacy to continue."

Canon described the trailer as a simple, white, 5x8 with a Seabase sticker on the left side and a Trappers sticker on the single back door.
