Officers of the Antioch Police Department responded to the report of grand theft at the First Missionary Baptist Church of Antioch at 640 E. Tregallas Road. A shed had been broken into and a trailer had been stolen from the church parking lot. The thieves used tools from a church storage shed to break a lock on a disaster relief trailer and towed the trailer from the church lot. The trailer is a 24-foot, two-axle, white box trailer with the church name on all sides. The trailer is valued at $10,000 and the contents are valued at another $20,000. The trailer contained two John Deer 6200-watt generators valued at $8,000 each, a water pump, cooking stoves, chain saws, an air conditioner and numerous other items used for disaster relief. The church’s surveillance system recorded two males in a newer model Chevy Tahoe, which was discovered to be stolen from the Los Angeles area. The theft occurred around 4 a.m. At around 5:20 p.m., the trailer was found at 3301 Wilbur Avenue, just outside the city limits. The two generators were missing, along with two water pumps and the chain saws. Those with information about this trailer theft should call Antioch Police Dispatch at 925-778-2441.May 28
