Business owner offers $1,000 reward in absence of Crime Stoppers
TRIGG COUNTY, Ky. — On July 5, two people pulled up to Western Kentucky Door in Cadiz, Kentucky, hooked their truck up to a utility trailer and drove off. Despite surveillance video, the two thieves have not been caught.
Randy Caldwell, the president of the company, doesn't want the crime to get forgotten, so he's offering $1,000 reward. He said he's doing it because Trigg County doesn't have a Crime Stoppers program.
Officer Scott Brown with the Cadiz Police Department told Local 6 the Trigg County Sheriff's Department is working on setting up the program and hopes to have it in place by the end of the year.
In the meantime, Caldwell said the reward is a small price to pay to get back his trailer, considering the money they've lost with it gone.
"The material that was left over was supposed to go to another job the following week, so we had to expedite that, which cost us about 40 percent more," he said.
Brown added that the reward is really the only other thing Caldwell can do to help solve the crime. He had already done everything right to try to prevent it.
"Mr. Caldwell did everything right, a fantastic surveillance system and the trailer was parked right in perfect view (of the camera). It's just one of those unfortunate things that happen," he said.
If you have any information that might help, call Cadiz police at (270) 522- 8369.
