A freezer was stolen from the SnoCap restaurant on Dec. 26.
The freezer was behind the restaurant, and the owner was to pick it up. An employee saw a red tuck pulling a trailer with a white freezer, clothes washer anddryer when she reported to work around 9:35 a.m., according to a North Augusta Public Safety incident report.
She said that she didn’t think any more about the truck because she thought that the owner had sent someone to pick up the freezer.
The owner told the reporting officer that he had left the freezer behind the restaurant and hadn’t given permission to anyone to take it. The freezer was valued at about $550.

There were about 500 newspapers in the vehicle, the victim told the reporting officer.
