BRAINTREE, Mass. (AP) — Organizers of a charity haunted house in Braintree say the scares will go on as planned this weekend despite the theft of two trailers used to store props.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mark Katic reports

The 53-foot trailers disappeared from behind a warehouse this week where they have been stored for several years.

Fortunately, most of the props were already assembled for the haunted house, which opened Thursday. The event has been held for 32 years as a fundraiser for the parent-teacher organizations at two city schools.

Volunteer Julie Canelli says organizers are baffled. Someone would have had to back a truck up to the trailers and hook them up before hauling them away. Volunteers speculate the trailers were stolen for their scrap metal value.

The trailers bear the logos of defunct department store Bradlees. and CF.
