St. Paul Central High robotics team trailer stolen – Twin Cities

St. Paul Central High School’s robotics trailer was stolen from the St. Anthony Park neighborhood sometime late Sunday or early Monday.

According to a Facebook post, the black Stealth single-axle trailer contained the team’s FIRST Tech Challenge equipment and various toolboxes and tools.

The trailer has a ramp door on back and side-entrance door and a blank rear license-plate frame “as no license plate is required,” the post states. “No discernible markings, unfortunately, few bangs on the fenders and at least one medium ding/scratch on the wedge. Recently badly repainted tongue area.”

The trailer’s license number is ADTU 051.

Earlier this year, the Highland Park High School’s robotics trailer was stolen from a street in a residential neighborhood. It was found hours later on a residential street in the Highland Park neighborhood, but nearly all of the team’s supplies and equipment were gone.

A community fundraising effort helped get the team the supplies it needed for an upcoming competition.

Anyone with information about Central’s stolen trailer is asked to call the St. Paul Police Department at 651-291-1111.
