Another trailer was stolen from in front of a Danville residence this week. Assistant Chief Tony Gray said this makes several that have been taken in the last few weeks.
Wednesday, a caller from 218 Candlewood Drive said his white, double-axle box trailer was taken during the day. Earlier in the week, another trailer was stolen from a different residence, Gray said.
"We've also had some utility trailers - the flatbed kind - stolen; maybe about three or four of them," Gray said. Some of them had mowers, Weed Eaters or other equipment on them when they were taken.
Some of the other areas hit are the Swope Drive and Shadeland Avenue areas and Alta and Beatty avenues.
"Some have been during the day. We're investigating all the cases to see if they are related," Gray said.
Also, last weekend, several steel chain saws were taken from company trucks over the weekend on Stewart's Lane. Gray said the culprits pried open the storage boxes on the trucks to steal the equipment.
