According to a statement released today from HPD, a 2009 Currahee trailer was stolen Saturday from Armstrong’s Auto Service on Leray Circle.
Surveillance video shows a white Dodge pickup truck backing up to the trailer shortly after 7 p.m. that day. A white man exits the truck, attaches the trailer to the pickup, and then drives off with it. It’s not clear if police were able to determine the pickup’s license plate number.
The back of the pickup, including the plate, is visible in still provided by police, but the distance from which the video was shot and the grainy quality of the stills make the tag illegible with the naked eye. The man in the video appears to be wearing dark pants and a light-colored shirt.
The stolen trailer is described as a dual axle trailer with a black frame and wooden flat bed. The vehicle registration on the trailer at the time of the theft was 365617TL and was registered through Virginia.
Lt. Chris Rush, division commander of HPD’s Criminal Investigations Division, asks anyone with information about the crime or the man or pickup in the video, to contact the division at 437-2640. Those who wish to remain anonymous are asked to call Crime Solvers at 574-5050.
