Thieves loot medieval festival

By Taxpayers Association of Oregon

More unusual theft in Oregon likely caused by addicts looking to steal and resell anything.

The Clackamas County Sheriff reports,

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help to help recover a unique treasure trove of medieval costuming — including a suit of armor — stolen from an equally unique renaissance-fair trailer. In the morning on Saturday, Oct. 28, a Sheriff’s Office Deputy responded to a report of a stolen trailer. The victim said that someone had stolen the trailer overnight from his rural property in Canby.  The trailer is a 4′ x 8′ low-wall trailer with a custom built round cover, decorated in a medieval theme. It’s used at renaissance fairs, and was filled with beautifully crafted medieval costume items — including an entire suit of armor, a sword, and other items. A photo of the trailer is attached. Fortunately, the responding deputy spotted and recovered the trailer that same day on Needy Road. However, someone had emptied it. Photos of these still-missing items are attached. Can you help us reunite these fantastic creations with their rightful owner? Anyone with information is urged to contact the Sheriff’s Office Tip Line — by phone at 503-723-4949 or by using the online email form at:
