The Christian County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a major theft at a Princeton Road residence.
45-year old Richard Rider of 15408 Princeton Road told deputies he was in the process of moving and had a loaded trailer parked in his barn covered up with a tarp. Rider said when he went to get the trailer Thursday, it was gone.
The trailer was loaded with about 13-thousand dollars worth of furniture and household goods—including a bed, mattress, china set and a hutch. The 20-foot metal trailer was valued at 3-thousand dollars.
