OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO)- A veteran living in Oklahoma City who lost his trailer and everything in it back in September has been reunited with some of his lost possessions following an OKC police drug raid that resulted in five arrests.

The victim had just moved to Oklahoma from Colorado for a mechanic job at Will Rogers World Airport when his belongings were stolen. Three weeks later, his trailer was found empty.

The group Honoring America's Warriors has been helping him since they first saw the story in September.

"He's got to meet a lot of new people, and he's kind of got a base, a place to go to whenever he needs anything, so we see him about twice a week," said Scotty Dee.

The license plate to the veteran's trailer was found during the recent raid, though he is still missing most of his possessions. He said he lost about $16,000 worth of specialty tools when his trailer was stolen, though he says thankfully his new co-workers helped him get on his feet.
