Emergency Response Trailer Stolen in SW Missouri
OZARK, Mo. (AP) - Christian County authorities are trying to find out who took the county's emergency response supply trailer
during flooding in southwest Missouri over the weekend. The white 14-foot Doolittle trailer was stolen Sunday evening as it was parked outside a warehouse in Ozark. It has a green "CERT" logo on the side. The contents were later found scattered along a
road in Branson.
Phil Amtower, the county's emergency management director, says video surveillance shows a dark minivan parked near the trailer for several minutes. A white, late model single-cab pickup later arrives, hooks up the trailer and leaves with it. The Springfield News-Leader reports that the trailer and training supplies were purchased through Homeland Security grants. The trailer is valued around $5,000.
