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.

We're tracking more active weather that's expected to hit our area early to late afternoon. All eyes are on a cold front moving in from the northwest. It looks as though some of the storms embedded within this line of rainfall may produce both wind gusts in excess of 40 or 50 mph along with pockets of large hail. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center of America has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a "1" on the Threat index for this afternoon and early evening. Our far southwestern communities are under a Slight Risk "2" - those communities include portions of Illinois (Saline, Hamilton, Gallatin, White, Hardin Counties) and Kentucky (Union, Crittenden, Caldwell Counties).
