Utility trailer used to raise money for Leukemia research stolen in Langford


A utility trailer used by Organized Khaos Percussion Ensemble to raise money for Leukemia research was stolen from a Langford street on Tuesday night.

The trailer was parked in its usual spot in the West Shore. It contained marching equipment, drums, a large brand new bass drum, parade decorations, and buckets. Essentially all the band’s equipment.

They are hoping if anyone sees anything with the Organized Khaos name on it, or even the trailer, that they will contact authorities right away.

Some defining marks on the trailer are: one side door with possibly a blue lock, barn doors on the back which may have a blue lock. The trailer is white with an interstate sticker on the front and one on the back door.

There are also some yellow rectangular track marks on each side where the signs would usually hang. The license plate number is: UGH 23K

If you know the whereabouts of this trailer or have any other information, please contact your local police station or Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous.

Organized Khaos is a non-profit group that plays both traditional and non-traditional percussion instruments. Their motto is “We Can Beat It” with the goal of beating leukemia.

This dynamic band of young performers can elicit rhythm from car parts, recycling bins, ladders, basketballs, suitcases, chairs, coffee cans, old street signs, pots and pans… yes, even the kitchen sink.

Since 2000, the group has raised more than $80,000 for local children and families affected by leukemia with their “We Can Beat It” fundraising concerts.

Shortly after the premiere of their show, they were invited to Disneyland to perform.
