Employees at a medical facility on Rockwell Road in Winchester showed up to work on Monday to find their security cameras titled up towards the sky. Staff looked around to see if anything was missing and sure enough, a trailer that was parked in the parking lot was gone.

The trailer was brought to the NuYu Health Services building over the weekend to fill with donations that staff members had collected for tornado victims in Salyersville.

"It's just sad with what the world is coming to these days," says Josh Akers, the President/CEO of NuYu Health Services.

The theft was caught on security camera. Someone decided to take off with the trailer before employees could load it up with the supplies and make the delivery.

"We're kind of devastated by the situation. I know it seems small material-wise, but I guess it's cause it had a value to our heart for the situation we were doing," adds Akers.

It happened early Monday morning, around 12:30. Surveillance video shows a man driving a pick up truck into the parking lot and scoping out the trailer. He leaves for a few minutes and returns moments later. This time he blocks the surveillance cameras in-site. But, another camera catches him driving off with the trailer.

NuYu Health Services is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the person that stole this trailer.

Staff members at NuYu will be loading up their personal cars and making several trips to Salyersville to make sure tornado victims get the donations.

This isn't the only business on Rockwell Road that has reported a trailer theft. Earlier this month, Thoroughbred Diesel also reported to law enforcement that a trailer was stolen from their property.

Clark County Sheriff's detectives are investigating if these thefts could be connected.
