OKLAHOMA CITY - A Sooner football fan says his Bedlam fun has been ruined.

Earlier this month, a thief broke into a small storage business in southwest Oklahoma City and stole a trailer used for tailgating.

Every time the Sooners took the field, dozens of friends and family would gather around the trailer in Norman.

"It was a family reunion every time we went out there," said the trailer's owner Fred Leighty.

The trailer included a large screen TV, satellite, wood cabinets inside and OU logo on the floor.

"The outside is plain white but inside it's very specific," said Leighty. "There's not a trailer like it."

Unfortunately for Fred, earlier this month someone cut the lock off the family's storage unit and stole the tailgate trailer.

"They don't realize it, but it brought happiness to the family," said Leighty. "It was like Thanksgiving every home game."

Surveillance video from the business may not be much help.

It only shows a blurry truck pulling into the lot.

The suspect spent just 5 minutes inside and then drove away with the trailer in tow.

Fred simply hopes the suspect is caught and the trailer returned.

That would make him almost as happy as win over the Cowboys.

"It's gonna be a sad Bedlam for us, but not for OU hopefully," said Leighty.

The worst news for Fred is that he didn't have insurance on the trailer.

Right now no arrests have been made, but anyone with information on the case can contact police.
