Ketchum police seek missing trailer

Numerous items go missing in Warm Springs

Express Staff Writer

Ketchum police are searching for a construction trailer that was stolen from the International Village condominiums in Warm Springs sometime Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

Police spokeswoman Kim Rogers said Monday that the trailer was loaded with "a stove, two new toilets, a fireplace insert and all sorts of remodeling stuff."

Police suspect the trailer theft is related to another theft in Warm Springs on the same evening. Ketchum City Council President Baird Gourlay reported that a red and black Honda SR5-250 dirt bike was taken from his home. Rogers said the trailer thieves may have thrown the bike onto the trailer during their getaway.

"I think they possibly could be related," she said.

Rewards are offered for information leading to the return of both the trailer and dirt bike. Rogers said an undisclosed cash reward has been offered for the trailer and Gourlay has offered a season's worth of free ski tune-ups for the bike. Gourlay is co-owner of a Ketchum sports store.

The trailer was described as a 4-by-8 foot Fruehauf brand, white in color with tan paint spilled on it. It has California license plate number 4BIJ7162.

Anyone with information on either item is asked to call (208) 726-TIPS.
