The Evansville Police Department said Tuesday that a weekend trailer theft from an Evansville business was now being investigated in connection to two other incidents.

EPD says that on Monday, March 8, Greer's Flooring on N. Green River Road in Evansville reported their cargo trailer was stolen from their lot over the weekend.

According to EPD, the suspect vehicle (seen pictured here) matches the description of a vehicle that committed the same crime in Henderson, Kentucky, and may also be involved in the recent theft of a trailer from the Acropolis restaurant on N. Green River Road.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
