Southbury Police are seeking the public's help as they investigate the theft of a trailer that was filled with a local craftsman's work tools. Yesterday morning, Sunday 9/13/2020 at approximately 7AM, Southbury Police Officers responded to a residence on Winship Drive in Heritage Village on a complaint that their trailer had been stolen overnight. Neighbors of the complainant stated that they had heard noises, and what sounded like people talking, at around 1:15AM that morning, but had not called the police in to investigate. The trailer that was stolen is described as a grey Stealth C7X14SL, with aluminum ladder racks, and custom shelving in the interior.

There were two older black and red paint-splattered ladders attached to the ladder racks, but the true loss was numerous work tools inside the trailer, estimated to be worth around $3,000.

Southbury Police believe that the vehicle that stole the trailer was a gas-powered truck powerful enough to tow the trailer away. They believe that the vehicle headed away from the scene Northbound on North Poverty Road. North Poverty Road eventually ends at Roxbury Road (Rt. 67), so if you may have been out early Saturday morning and saw this trailer, or the suspected truck that was towing it away, or, any other pertinent information regarding this incident, is being asked to contact Officer Houle of the Southbury PD at 203-264-5912.
