POTSDAM A 16-foot utility flat-bed trailer was reported stolen at 9:40 a.m. Monday from Northern Family Motel, 6775 Route 56.
The trailer was parked out of sight from the road, said Eric J. Matott, co-owner of the 15-room Northern Family Motel, and had actually been missing since Thursday.
Mr. Matott said the owner of the trailer had dropped off a Kubota tractor on Wednesday and on Thursday, the flatbed was gone.
I thought he had come and picked it up and never had any suspicions, until he came to pick it up on Sunday. Mr. Matott said. Its so strange. Someone would have had to come in off the road to know it was there.
Mr. Matott filed a report with state police and an investigation is underway.
