It's been a difficult year for local businesses.

Now, one east side restaurant is pleading for answers after their catering trailer was stolen

Evansville Police were called to Acropolis Restaurant and Catering on North Green River Road early Saturday morning after the owner discovered the trailer, which had all of the restaurant's catering equipment inside, had gone missing.

Acropolis Owner Doros Hadjisavva says the theft of the restaurant's trailer couldn't have come at a worse time after the business has already faced a year of pandemic problems.

"Things were so bad during the pandemic, we didn't do any business in 2020," said Hadjisavva. "Everybody's trying to help us locate it, and I hope we find it."

Hadjisavva says while Acropolis does not have cameras outside the building, he's hopeful a nearby business might have footage that could help in the case.

If you know anything about this incident, you are asked to call the Evansville Police Department.

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
