Union City police are investigating the theft of a trailer and a heating and air conditioning unit from Benoist Brothers Supply Co. at 1410 North Fifth St.
Police responded Monday to the business, where an employee said a 16-foot utility trailer had been stolen from the grounds sometime between Friday and Monday, according to a Union City Police Department report.
The trailer had been inside a locked fence. The employee told police the fence was chained and locked and that both the chain and lock were missing.
The trailer is described as being black in color with the right side board bowed out and rear tires that are bigger than the front tires, according to the report.
It was later discovered that a Ruud™ heating and air conditioning unit was also missing from the business, police reported.
