Spruce Creek HS Band’s New Trailer Stolen From School

By on December 10, 2018 in WNDB News

Port Orange, FL – The new trailer belonging to the Spruce Creek Hawks is stolen out of the school’s parking lot.

Port Orange police and Spruce Creek High both say that the trailer was stolen out of the parking lot of the school shortly after 11 o’clock Saturday night (December 8th).

Lauren Martin, the Associate Director of Bands at SCHS, says they had just barely broken in the trailer before it was stolen.

“We had just used the trailer for the very first time last Sunday (December 2nd) for the Port Orange Christmas Parade,” Martin told WNDB. “I don’t even think we had the trailer a month.”

Martin also said that it appeared that the locks on the school’s gate had been cut before someone drove a vehicle inside to take the trailer away.

The school says a white four-door or extended cab GM truck (Chevy/GMC) was used to take the trailer away.

The trailer is a 28-foot white Anvil trailer with doors on both sides of the trailer. Martin said that the trailer had a temporary tag on it, bearing CHV2827, but there was also a permanent tag on the inside of the trailer which had not been applied yet.

“Luckily nothing was in the trailer except for the permanent tag,” Martin said, confirming no instruments or equipment were inside.

The permanent tag is a Florida plate bearing KRZM21. Martin said that it’s possible that the permanent tag is currently being used on the trailer in place of the temporary tag.

Martin also commented, saying that it’s not even that they’re stealing from the school, they’re really stealing from the kids.

If anyone has information regarding the whereabouts of the trailer, you can contact Robert Bosma, the director of the Spruce Creek Band, at rkbosma@volusia.k12.fl.us or the Port Orange Police Department.
