ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - A St. George Boy Scout troop says it will be relying on donated gear for camping trips after $7,000 worth of equipment was stolen.

The varsity team coach for Troop 817, Boyd Kanenwisher, says the camping gear and a trailer disappeared May 17 from a church parking lot in Bloomington. He says it had been locked up.

Kanenwisher tells the Deseret News (https://bit.ly/TQCBCG ) that the troop had raised money to buy the equipment by selling flags.

One of the scouts, McKay Goldhardt, says it was hard work.

The troop is scheduled to go on a three-day camping trip this week. Kanenwisher says local doctors and businesses have offered money and gear for the trip.



Kanenwisher said Tuesday that the troop members are willing to forgive whoever took the equipment and move forward.
