Last month, Newport News experienced two incidents of trailer theft. The first incident occurred on March 9th at around 1:20 in the morning. The theft happened at A-Hampton Roads Plumbing in front of Jefferson Avenue. The car trailer was stolen right from the lot.

The Vice President of A-Hampton Roads Plumbing, Kenny Cain, old news reporters that the trailer was sitting in the parking lot for literally only one night. Thankfully, the entire incident was recorded on a nearby surveillance camera.

Footage revealed a light-colored Nissan Armada pull up to the front of the building, and a suspect exits the car. The suspect appeared to be aware of the camera’s presence as he looks up eye-to-eye at the device before continuing his theft. The suspect is being described as a heavy-set man, and he was wearing a gray hoodie. He hooks the trailer up to his SUV and drives off. A police report was filed, and a detective was assigned to the case.

Days later on March 14th, another trailer theft occurred in a parking lot behind Rita’s Italian Ice. The owner of the store, Jerry Crissman, explained to news reporters that the theft occurred around two o’clock in the morning.

The suspect stole the trailer which was loaded with supplies. Crissman listed some of the items that were stolen including a big freezer, a generator, Italian ice, two carts, cups, a pushcart, spoons, a toolkit and an ice guy mascot. In total, the thieves got away with over $18,000 worth of merchandise. Crissman noted that the trailer was secured with several lock pads, so the thief must have known what he was doing.

Police are investigating both cases of trailer theft, and they haven’t stated whether the two cases are related or not. The increase in trailer thefts in the area has other trailer owners concerned about protecting their property. GPS asset tracking for trailers offers a potential solution for trailer owners.

These devices will allow owners to track their trailer through a mobile app, and they will be informed if their trailer begins moving unexpectedly. In the event your trailer is taken, police will have a great lead that can help them potentially recover your belongings safely.
