Trailer Stolen From Central Lubbock Recovered

"I think it was just convenient for them and they wanted to haul away a lot of merchandise," said Lubbock resident Wally Borchardt.

Borchardt had a utility trailer parked outside his home in central Lubbock , but sometime between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. Sunday morning the trailer was stolen. By 4:30 p.m. Lubbock Police recovered the trailer and it's contents at a self-storage facility not too far away from Borchardt's residence.

"The police believe the thieves wanted it to haul away merchandise. They had broken into lockers and wanted and carry the stuff away," said Borchardt.

The trailer that was stolen wasn't just any ordinary trailer; it was a Boy Scout Troop trailer containing about 280 American Flags and 15-years of tradition for Lubbock Boy Scout Troop 406.

Every year on Veteran's Day, Troop 406 honors our veterans by placing these flags out around The South Plains Mall.  "I just couldn't believe it. That someone would take, a non-descript trailer and I knew what was inside of it, flags," Borchardt said.

In total, the 25 Boy Scouts in Troop 406, starting at 6 a.m. will, put out roughly 500-flags on Veterans Day and other national holidays around the South Plains Mall and in many Veteran's front yards to honor those who have served our county.

Lubbock Police still need your help finding the people who stole the trailer. If you have any information, please call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
