stolen trailer

5 posts in this topic

I just found out that we had a work trailer stolen from our office, it must have happened sometime last night (4/8/05). It was stolen from an office in Blaine MN. Description: 6x12 enclosed trailer, blue in color with Rainman Irrigation in white lettereing on both sides and the back. I'm sure the lettering is gone by now, but I would guess that you could still see the outline, unless its been painted. Inside was misc tools and equiptment for underground sprinkler systems. If you see a new trailer in the neighborhood, or hear of anyone trying to get rid of one I would sure like to know about it. Thanks for the open eyes and ears. My contact info

Other than the markings mentioned, is there some sort of other noticeable markings?

There has been a burst of these trailer thefts in the N Metro. I know of 3 others that were taken near fleet farm. Bummer. Sorry to this Setterguy.

SG-

Sorry to here about the theft. It seems to be more common in recent years.

In 2003, I had a trailer stolen from the Blaine area. I had a tongue lock and a cable through the axel, both gone. The cops found the trailer on Olive Street in St. Paul(recovered in good condition), hollowed out. It seems that they didn't want the trailer, just the contents.

Also was broken into in a parking lot in Wyoming, MN in 2004; they just took tools and supplies that time. I hope that you recover your trailer, it also seems to be more frequent when school is out(sad).

Good luck- RR4

Lost, I don't think there were any real distinguishing markings, it was only a couple of years old and in pretty good shape. I kind of figured the trailer might show up again, there really isn't anything in there of value to anyone besides me. Unless there is a big black market for irrigaition supplies. smirk.gif Thanks for keeping a lookout.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
