WEATHERFORD ­— The Weatherford Police Department is currently investigating recent trailer thefts that have occurred inside the city and Parker County Crime Stoppers has issued this as their Crime of the Week.

On Wednesday, Nov. 25, a complainant reported that sometime between Nov. 24 and Nov. 25, his 14-foot trailer was stolen outside of a renovation job located at the 100 block of May Court. The trailer was described as a candy apple red, 14-foot dual-axle trailer with red 12-inch wood sides and white spoke wheels. The complainant stated there was a large Rigid brand tool box strapped to the front containing various tools and that he had removed the license because he has had those stolen in the past. The trailer is registered with Texas license plate No. 67682A.

Then, on Saturday, Dec. 5, a complainant reported that on this date, unknown suspects stole a flatbed trailer from his residence located at the 400 block of Ridgeway. The trailer is described as a black 16-foot flatbed, black tongue pull trailer. He went on further to say the fender well underneath the right side was damaged and that the license plate hung under the fender.

“We are not sure at this time if these two thefts are related,” Lead Detective Lannie Fulton said. “But we are working diligently to solve these crimes before a pattern develops.”

The Weatherford Police Department is encouraging anyone with information on either of these crimes to contact the department immediately.

Up to a $1,000 reward will be paid for this information and informants may remain anonymous.

Any one with information leading to the arrest and indictment of the persons involved in this crime is asked to contact the Parker County Crime Stoppers today at (817) 599-5555 or 1-800-942-STOP.
