Owners offering reward after sentimental classic camper is stolen by thievesPosted 10:00 pm, December 26, 2017, by Brent Skarky, Updated at 10:20PM, December 26, 2017
OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma City family says multiple trailers were stolen from their business over the Christmas weekend.
The Soraya family manages and renovate apartments, and their office is located in a warehouse in an industrial area just east of Chesapeake Energy.
During the holiday break, they say someone stole materials, tools, supplies and three work trailers that were valued at close to $100,000.
In addition to stealing from the business, the family says the thieves made off with their personal travel trailer.
"It was very, very important and special to us. All our family vacations take place in that trailer because we always go with our dogs," said Casey Soraya.
Despite spending thousands of dollars on the other items, they say the camper holds a special place in their hearts.
"We had one of our dogs die unexpectedly two years ago. Our memories traveling and camping with him in that camper are really, really special to us, so it just kinda added insult to injury that that personal camper was taken. For us, those are our personal memories and that is all we have left from our dogs because we don’t have kids, the dogs are pretty special," Soraya said.
The owners are offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the recovery of the stolen trailers
"When you employ a certain number of people, many of them who have been inside here, it's hard to tell if it's someone who has worked for us in the past of just some random person that decided to take our things. But from the way they broke in through the outside door, sort of looks as if someone had been here before," Soraya said.
If you have any information on the theft, call the family at (310) 614-0795.
All Hands On Deck! Let's Help Her Add Heat So They Can Find The Trailer. In the United States stolen trailers is not a concern for law enforcement especially in Oklahoma...Oklahoma does not register a trailer and it is legal to steal anybody's trailer and tow it anywhere in Oklahoma and not have any identification or license plate.
The reality is that the State of Oklahoma and 11 other States is somewhat complicit in inflicting damage to these good hearted folk and budding entrepreneurs. Oklahoma and 11 Other States chooses not to title trailers meaning very few have license plates attached …. Or even a means for law enforcement officers to make effective inquiry of the various computerized lookouts / wants for stolen property. Think about it … as a Highway Patrolman on any Interstate coming behind a utility trailer headed to a flea market in Any State to sell “stuff”, there is no method WHATSOEVER for that officer to make a computerized inquiry to establish reasonable cause which leads to probable cause and an arrest / recovery. Every Lawmaker hamstrings law enforcement inflicting further harm on your residents.
