A church group from Tennessee came to Lawton to help flood victims. After being here for a matter of hours, one of their trailers full of supplies was stolen. The stolen trailer was found in a nearby alley, and it appears nothing was missing, KSWO reports.
The trailer belongs to Red Bank Baptist Church in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The trailer was taken from the parking lot of the First Baptist West Church on Northwest Cache Road sometime Sunday. The group from Tennessee arrived in Lawton Sunday morning and when they woke up Monday, they were shocked. The locks were cut off and the trailer taken off the church property.
The church group had two other trailers loaded with supplies and they were still able to get to work. The associate pastor of the church here in Lawton says he’s disappointed anyone would do this.
Doyle Pittman, from Red Bank Baptist, says close to $5,000 worth of equipment was inside the trailer.
