CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A trailer full of a Boy Scout troop's camping supplies was stolen from a church in Charlotte in January and police are searching for whoever is responsible.

According to the police report, the trailer was stolen between Jan. 21 and Jan. 27 from the Friendship Missionary Baptist Church parking lot, located off of Beatties Ford Road.

"It's all of our equipment, all of our tents," Zion Hayes-Brown said. "So now we have to replace all of that equipment."
