DUNCANVILLE (1080 KRLD) - A Duncanville Boy Scout troop's camping trip is in jeopardy after its trailer was stolen over the weekend.

"Somewhere between 9:30 (p.m. Friday) and 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, somebody cut the locks on the compound area and on the trailer and took the trailer with all the gear in it," says Bettie George, Boy Scout Troop 193 committee chairwoman. "The trailer was secured in a compound area behind our church (Grace Place Church of Christ) that sponsors our troop."

George says it appeared that the troop's trailer was specifically targeted.

"There were four other trailers in the compound area," she says, "and the only one they took was the Boy Scout trailer with the equipment in it."

For the most part, the trailer had no unusual markings on it.

"The only thing that makes it different than most of them is on the very front of the trailer on the very top, it says 'Rocky Top,'" says George.

The trailer contained essentialls including camping stoves, propane tanks, charcoal starters, lanterns, tool bags, first aid kits, water containers, an ice chest and lawn chairs.

"We are scheduled to go camping on the 28th of this month, and we would need all of that gear," George says.

Without that gear, that camping trip might not happen.

"There's a service project related to this, to do some cleaning up at a state park and stuff, so they're really excited to go and do it," says George.
