During the night of September 1st, someone stole a brand new T@B travel trailer from the sales lot at Highland Orchards RV on Route 49. The camp trailer is also called a "teardrop" trailer, made to look like the retro teardrops of the past. The colors of this particular T@B are silver with red trim.

The state police have been notified. Please call in if anyone has any info about this incident.  Thanks,
Bob and Elaine Boissevain
