Stolen trailer recovered, man arrested

SPRINGTOWN – Weatherford-Parker County Special Crimes Unit recovered a stolen travel trailer Wednesday afternoon.

An anonymous tip led SCU investigators to a residence in the 900 block of Lynch Bend Road in Springtown, where a travel trailer, reported stolen in Wise County, was located.

Investigators spoke with the homeowner, identified as James William Curtis Jr., 52, who told investigators although he recently began living in the travel trailer, he was keeping the trailer for a friend and his permanent residence was a single-wide trailer located next to the travel trailer.

During the investigation, SCU members discovered Curtis had multiple outstanding warrants for possession of a controlled substance, theft, driving while license invalid, failure to maintain financial responsibility and defective equipment. 

The travel trailer was confirmed stolen out of Wise County. Curtis was booked into the Parker County Jail on the outstanding warrants. The investigation was turned over to the Wise County Sheriff’s Office. Charges for the theft are pending that investigation.

As of Thursday morning, Curtis’ bond omn a charge of theft of property more than $1,500 and less than $20,000 had not been set. The fines on his other charges total $988.
