FLORIDA – Trail left by stolen trailer lead deputies to thief


Via: Sun Sentinel

To find a stolen trailer and the man who took it, all deputies had to do was follow the trail.

The trailer had NO TIRES when a thief hauled it away from a Loxahatchee Groves house, so its RIMS left markings on the road – part of which is dirt. The markings led deputies three miles away, straight to a driveway where the trailer was parked.

Angel Cruz Rosell, 51, was arrested after investigation revealed that was his driveway and he was the one who drove off with it, according to his arrest report.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies began investigating around 8 p.m. Tuesday when a man said he saw someone driving a blue Chevy pickup truck take the trailer from his neighbor’s property on the 3800 block of 161st Trail North.

The trailer contained a concrete pump and mixer. In all, the stolen items were valued at about $13,000, the owner said. He said he did not give anyone permission to take his belongings and the gate to his property was locked when they disappeared.
