Dignity Health trailer filled with more than $250,000 worth of equipment stolen
RED BLUFF, Calif. - A Dignity Health trailer has been stolen from St. Elizabeth Community Hospital and it was filled with over $250,000 worth of decontamination equipment.
Disaster and Emergency Management Coordinator Ruth Ann Rowen said the trailer was likely stolen during Thanksgiving weekend, when few people were in the area but said it could have happened during the week leading up to Thanksgiving weekend as well.
Rowen said there was no medication or medical supplies in the trailer, just portable showers, masks, brushes, buckets, and cleaning supplies. Rowen added similar trailers have been stolen from other hospitals to be used as portable drug labs.
The trailer, photographed above, is a 14-foot silver tandem axle trailer with a license plate number of 4MT4739.
Rowen said the trailer had been moved out of security camera range because of construction at the hospital but security personnel are going through video now to see if the video pulling it away was caught on camera.
If you see the trailer, please contact the Red Bluff Police Department.
