A Willis Lane man reported someone stole his utility trailer along with three ladders on July 2 sometime between 6:50 and 10:30 a.m.
That’s according to a Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office incident report that goes on to state the items were presumably taken after the trailer lock was cut.
The trailer is a dual-axel, black B&D that is six feet tall and 12 feet long. The two front rims are rusted and the back ones are new. Two of the ladders were 20-foot extension ladders and one was a 16-foot extension ladder, according to the report.
The total value of missing items is estimated at $2,000.
A neighbor told a deputy he saw a maroon, older model GMC or Chevy two-door pull into the neighborhood and back into the victim’s driveway. The witness said he saw the vehicle leave the residence but was unsure if a trailer was connected, according to the report.
A separate but similar incident occurred on June 28 or June 29 at a Wampee Drive residence near Pinopolis when a 6-by-14 foot utility trailer was stolen.
The trailer was in the victim’s backyard and covered with three limbs. A storage box inside the trailer contained three nail guns and an air nail gun. The total value of stolen items is estimated to be $4,350.
