HAGERSTOWN - A Washington County trucking firm is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of a stolen trailer, the company president said Wednesday.

Hagerstown City Police are investigating the theft of the trailer, which M.A. Courier Trucking Co. reported stolen on Sunday, Nov. 10, from the South End Shopping Center. The trailer was stolen that weekend.

The trailer contained several thousand Emerson clock radios, police said.

The white 2000 Dorsey trailer had a Maine tag, 0488947, police said.

Company President Marco Alvarez said the trailer alone is worth $10,000. Alvarez said he wasn't optimistic about recovering the clock radios.


The model number of the clock radios is CKS2288B, police said.

Police would not say how much the stolen cargo was worth.

Anyone who has information about the theft or who sees the clocks being sold may call Hagerstown City Police's Criminal Investigation Division at 301-790-3700.

Police said the clocks could end up being sold anywhere, including from the side of the road, or they could have been sold to another company.

Alvarez asks people with information that could lead to the recovery of the trailer to call M.A. Courier Trucking at 1-800-551-4805.

M.A. Courier Trucking is located off Md. 63 at 16125 Business Parkway near Williamsport.

The trailer often was unhitched at the South End Shopping Center on Maryland Avenue because that was close to the driver's home and there is little room at the main site for the trailer, he said.
