One local vendor is asking for the public’s assistance in finding his food trailer.

Anthony Keenan, owner of Papa’s Kitchen Done Chicago Style, announced the enclosed trailer was stolen Tuesday night in a post on his business’ Facebook page.

In an interview Wednesday, Keenan said the trailer was taken sometime between 1 and 7 p.m. Tuesday from the parking lot of his 300 block of West Mescalero Road apartment building.

“They did not just steal a trailer, they stole my livelihood,” he said.

Keenan added the trailer was locked down when he last saw it and does not know how someone could have unlocked it.

He subsequently contacted police and reported the alleged theft. Keenan said he is surprised by the situation.

“It felt like my heart had been ripped from my chest,” he said.

Keenan purchased the enclosed trailer just over a year ago and spent $19,000 to repurpose it. In addition to the trailer, $3,000 in cash, food and other items were inside of it when Keenan last saw it.

The theft has been reported to the Roswell Police Department. Keenan said he has since heard from several individuals who said they saw the trailer in the parking lot of Home Depot in the 2300 block of North Main Street, and in other locations.

“I’ve had quite a few people tell me that they’ve seen it over at Home Depot and a few other places in town, so I am hoping that it is still here,” Keenan said.

The trailer has the license plate number 55945 TR K. People with information about its whereabouts, Keenan said, should either contact him at 575-317-2350 or the RPD at 575-624-6770.
