GARDEN CITY, Mich. – Thieves often have no idea who they’re hurting. In the case of a stolen trailer in Metro Detroit, the victims are people in need and the owner needs it back to continue the work he does in the community.
“It’s a bummer to lose that trailer like that,” said “Brother Joe” with Outcry Youth and Street Ministry.
The man known as “Brother Joe” spends all of his nights on city streets giving back to those in need. He offers a hot meal with warm clothing and a kind word.
This past Sunday, he bought a used trailer to help him haul all of the food and clothing. Hours later, someone stole the trailer.
“By morning, they stole it. The $2,500 right out the window,” he said. “It was a used trailer ... I think 16 foot. It was a good one, it was just solid.”
Anyone with information on the stolen trailer is asked to contact Garden City police.
