Forsyth County News

A storage trailer belonging to a business that sells locally grown produce is missing.

According to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s report, the $1,900 cargo trailer was reported stolen Saturday morning from the parking lot of the North Georgia Autism Center on Hwy. 9.

The trailer, used by a company called The Cumming Harvest, contained three foldable tables, worth an estimated $500, as well as $100 worth of fruit and vegetables.

"Mr. [William] McDowell pointed out where the vehicle was located and there was visible skid marks/drag marks left from the trailer where it appeared someone had pulled the trailer with the tire lock still intact," the report said.

McDowell, who the report noted sells produce from the trailer every Saturday, said it had been taken some time since July 9.

A message on the company’s page at a social networking site alerted customers to the development.

The online business plans to continue with the market, but asks that those who ordered frozen items wait until 10 a.m. Saturday to pick them up.
