KAYSVILLE, Utah – A business in Kaysville was ready to ship a load of product to a major national retailer, but instead they lost it all when thieves struck.

Trim Art LLC makes wooden fixtures for stores, and they had a trailer loaded with a shipment ready to go when it was stolen Monday night.

Surveillance footage shows a dark pickup truck towing the Charmac trailer away from the business. Trim Art said they had $7,500 worth of new fixtures in the trailer set to be delivered Tuesday.

“We have a client that is expecting these fixtures to be done, and so, we’re kind of panicked,” said Cordell McDonald, a co-owner at Trim Art LLC.

The company says at this point the major issue is having too much to do and not enough time to do it.

“The labor is a lot more valuable to us at this time than even the product itself,” Co-owner Tyler May said.

And that makes for a busy holiday season for this crew.

“We’re going to have about 2.5 to 3 weeks’ of work to make up between now and the end of the year,” Manager Nate Folkersen said.

Anyone who recognizes the vehicle in the surveillance footage or who has any knowledge of the crimes is asked to call Kaysville Police.
