This was posted on another quilt group and I think it is worth passing. Hope it is ok with this Board.
I am sad to say, that sometime between 9:40AM and 4:10PM today, November
4th, someone cut the lock on the ball hitch of our trailer and removed
it from the limited access parking compound at the George Brown
Convention Center in Houston Texas.
We have lost all the quilts and quilted items that were not on display,
our tools, storage bins, customized crates, electrical equipment,
lighting, tie downs etc. For us this is a severe setback. We will have
to rent a U-Haul tomorrow to try and get our things home. We have filed
a police report but we need the help of the public too!
The trailer is a white 14' Trans American brand with a double axle (two
wheels each side). IT has a back door that drops down into a ramp and a
small side door on the passenger side near the front. The license plate
is 76Z TCN.
It is being treated as an auto theft by the Houston Police Department.
If you should see this trailer or have any information that might help
us find it, please call them!
We will be busy tonight and tomorrow trying to secure a trailer to rent
to bring our things home. The Convention Center is letting us leave
things here overnight, but we are not sure if it will cost us anything
or not. We have been able to get discarded boxes to pack a lot of our
stuff and one of the longarm companies gave us their sewouts to wrap
some of our fragile items.
Thanks so much. I keep praying that the police will find our stuff and
the trailer in one piece. Happy quilting!
