(BANT) – A train used to entertain children at community events in Contra Costa County was stolen overnight from Pleasant Hill, police said.
Police responded at 8 a.m. Sunday to the 3000 block of Vincent Road where the $60,000 electric train and the trailer carrying it were stolen, Sgt. Janayla Pierson said.
The black Interstate utility trailer has license plate No. 4NN4556. The owners of the train regularly take it to events and they had future ones booked, Sgt. Pierson said.
Police don’t have any suspects or a description of the vehicle used to tow the trailer away. But according to Pierson, officers are looking for surveillance video that might have captured one or the other or both.
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to call the Pleasant Hill Police Department at (925) 288-4600.
