Trailer of supplies stolen from Greenwood Boy Scout troop recovered by police in Indianapolis

Equipment still inside

INDIANAPOLIS - A trailer full of camping equipment stolen from a Greenwood Boy Scout troop has been recovered.

The troop's trailer was stolen around Thanksgiving from the American Legion parking lot, where the troop had been parking the trailer for two decades.

On Dec. 3, Indianapolis police recovered the trailer at 6437 West Washington St., and while it was beaten up, much of the troop's equipment was still inside.

"The graphics had been violently removed, the rear doors had been forced open and both fenders had been damaged, (but) it appears some of our equipment is still there," said troop leader James Castellano.

In the aftermath of the theft, several groups and businesses donated supplies and money to the troop, which Castellano said won't go to waste. 

"Once we get our property back and assess our actual needs versus what has been donated, we will distribute any of the donations that are in excess of our needs to other scouts who may need help in the region," he said.
