TAMPA, FL (WFLA) — A $17,000 trailer stolen earlier this week from American Trailers in Tampa has been found abandoned early Wednesday morning on Highway 29 in Plant City.
Jessica Watson, the officer manager of the trailer company located at 6202 East Hillsborough Avenue, tells News Channel 8 the 40-foot trailer was found around 5:45 a.m. The Sheriff’s Office is still actively investigating who stole it. A $1,000 reward for information leading to their arrest still stands.
Watson says she is extremely relieved. The trailer only had minor damage and will be fixed and sold.
The thieves were caught on camera Saturday around 11:45 p.m. They were in and out in 20 minutes. They wore masks and gloves and knew exactly what they were doing. Turns out, Watson says she most likely helped one of the guys two weeks ago when he came in and was acting strangely.
