UPDATE January 6, 2021: Following the press release of the ‘Stolen Boy Scout Trailers’, Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Detectives received numerous tips from the community which revealed the location of the 1st stolen trailer.

The trailer was subsequently recovered on Dec. 23, 2020, and had been spray painted black. Additional leads ultimately led to the recovery of the 2nd trailer on Dec. 31. The 2nd trailer was found covered in cardboard disguising the Boy Scouts of America insignia.

Both trailers were recovered in St. Leonard, MD.
