Thief steals items from trailer, but cleans up

June 19, 2010

CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Whoever stole an Ohio trailer filled with scouting equipment deserves a merit badge for neatness. A tip to police near Canton led officers to the trailer on Thursday. Less than $300 worth of equipment was missing from inside, and otherwise things were shipshape, with items neatly stacked and organized.

Scoutmaster James Martens of Boy Scout Troop 10 calls it “the neatest-looking, rifled-through trailer” he’s ever seen.

The stolen items included paper towels, toilet paper, aluminum foil, a First Aid kit and a tool kit. The scouts have gotten offers of help to replace the stuff.
