ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A trailer containing chemicals that can be dangerous was stolen in Belton last week.

The theft happened between April 7 and April 12 at the Anderson Jockey Lot at 4530 Hwy. 29.

Deputies said the 53-foot-long, enclosed trailer contained about 1,000 pounds of sodium hydroxide, which is commonly referred to as lye. They said the chemical, which is used as a drain cleaner, can burn the skin, cause breathing problems and irritate the eyes.

The trailer also contained 26 parking lot lights and two kitchen ranges, deputies said.

Deputies said the trailer has the number 139 painted on the side.

Anyone who has information about the trailer or the theft was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIME-SC (888-274-6372).
