MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Two campers worth $34,000 with attached toy haulers for loading equipment were stolen within the past two months from owners in Rutherford County, according to local authorities.
A 2006 Forest River Cherokee Wolfpack camper was stolen about 6:30 a.m. on Nov. 17 from A&L RV Sales on Capital Way near Christiana, said Detective Richard Brinkley, who works for the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office.
"Surveillance tape showed two men in a full-sized, red Chevrolet pickup truck believed taking the camper from the business located near the Buchanan exit off Interstate 24," he said. "The camper contained camping gear inside."
Officials estimate the total loss at $14,300.
In another case, Deputy Richard Horne, who works for the Sheriff's Office, reported someone stole a 2007 28-foot Weekend Warrior camper on Oct. 1 from Lanita Lee of Bradyville Pike near Murfreesboro.
Contents of the trailer included a flat-screen TV, jack, hitch and miscellaneous camping gear. Value was set at $20,000.
Brinkley said Lee’s camper also had a toy hauler, causing him to believe the two thefts might be related.
People who have information on the two suspects in the red truck or any other information on the campers are asked to call Brinkley at 615-904-3045.
