My trailer was stolen.
« on: November 25, 2013, 07:23:53 AM »
Please be on the lookout for my trailer. Stolen from my house in Delaware City, Delaware sometime between 7pm last night and 7am this morning (Mon 11/25/2013). It's a black 4x8 flat bed trailer with 9" sides, no gate. PA license plate # XFA1139. Wood decking, green "Muzzy Exhaust" sticker on one of the fenders. License plate is slightly bent. All lights should be working. Silver fold-down front stand wheel. Made by Carry-On, though they generally all look alike. 12" wheels with white rims; not the stock wheels.

People are the worst.


Anything to distinguish it from all the other trailers on the road?

Not really. Muzzy exhaust sticker on the fender. 2x8 planking deck. As usual, I'd know if I saw it, but I can't really point to anything particular on it to give to the police as unique.

Yeah, that's it. I'm **HOPING** that the business next door thought it was theirs and are using it today. I hope. That's an easy enough mistake.

I'm just waiting to hear from my brother to make sure he didn't snag it before I call the cops.

It normally is, but it's been used a bit recently, so it wasn't locked last night. (sigh)

That completely sucks.  Here's to hoping that it is being used by mistake and will be returned. 

I keep the latch on the hitch of the trailer closed with a lock through it when not in use.  That way, someone would need to cut the lock off the hitch to mount the trailer on their ball.

Hope it was a mistake and gets returned. If it isn't, I hope you find it and the thieves, recover your trailer and the murders remain a mystery forever.

It really is. I really, really hope that there was just confusion. There's a business next door and my landlord and the guy who owns the biz are friends and biz associates. My landlord worked it out so I could park my trailer over there. I'm hoping that one of the guys who works there grabbed the trailer thinking it's theirs... they're a plumbing and electrical contracting house, and they use the garage next door for equipment storage.

Here's hoping.... Messages still pending.

Well, none of the handful of people who have open invitation to come get and use the trailer have it. So, police report is now filed.

Matt, no video, no. It's a tiny little garage used for equipment storage.

My neighbor said she saw a white truck with an older guy and a teenage boy towing it out one day last week, but as she's seen a number of people all use it (my son, my brother, my niece's husband), she didn't think much of it. It also came back after that because it was here over the weekend. I've also seen a white truck at that garage, so I left a note... I haven't seen anyone at the garage all week, and there's no info posted on how to get hold of them. It's just a storage place and not an actual work office/garage.

I told that to the police. :shrug:

Could they have closed up shop and used the trailer to move on?

Dude, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised.

She just moved (you know, since she stopped paying the mortgage out of the forty fucking thousand in support she gets each year and the bank took it back and I'm powerless to do one fucking thing about it) and refuses to give me the new address, and has forbidden the kids from telling me.

Oh, I'm going to have so much fucking time in court over this bullshit...  :facepalm:

By LAW that slimy life support system for a set of meat curtains HAS to keep you informed of your kids address. I'd press that issue.

Here's a recent update with more to add after this...

Alright, so here's the whole thing, now that I've pieced it all together. Marc, feel free to give me some pointers on this, 'cause I feel like the more I push, the more I'm just gonna come up losing on this.

I moved into this place in April. The trailer came to the house in late June or early July when my brother and I vacated the storage garage we shared. I had the trailer in my driveway which is big enough for 2 cars. I asked the landlord - who lives right next door to me - if I could put the trailer in the farthest part of the back yard (backs up to small woods), or somewhere else on property.

He told me to put it off to the side of the property. I asked him to confirm that'd be cool and he again said yes. He was good friends with the guy who owns the business next door and he'd talk to him. So, I put the trailer there. It's been used a number of times since then, but largely sits there. - The landlord later reminded me that it was HE who moved the trailer over, not me. Which is even better.

Fast forward to when I noticed it was gone... I called and asked everyone I knew, and even asked a few people around town if anyone had seen anything. No one I knew had it or used it recently, and no one local had seen anything. My landlord hadn't answered my inquiries. So, I called the police a couple days later and made the report that it was stolen.

After making the report, my other neighbor said that she'd seen a guy and a younger teenager in a white truck towing it a couple weeks before that. I had seen a white truck with a guy and a kid at the garage a couple times. So, I put a note over there - to sum up - "If you have my trailer, please return it immediately so I can cancel the police report." I was direct and matter of fact.

Time goes on, then I get the note pictured. I go up to PCS to look for the trailer on the way home from work last night; don't see it there. I called them and left a message... to sum up again, "I'm so-n-so. I understand you have my trailer and I'm not sure why that is. The police told me it's in your possession. I reported it stolen."

Got a call back today... my landlord never spoke to him about the trailer being there, but the guy wanted to know "why was it on my property for over a year?" I tried telling him I hadn't moved in until April and the trailer didn't come here 'til mid summer, and his response was "I don't want to argue about this."

"Well, you're flat out wrong on timing. I'm not arguing, but I have a lease from Kevin showing when I moved in, and I can show the lease on my storage garage showing when I vacated. Kevin should also agree as to when the trailer showed up here. "

"I just told you I'm not arguing about this." He went on to say that he feels like he should be compensated for storage fees and towing fees to remove it (his trucks have tow hitches; he's a contractor with like a dozen trucks). I again asked if my landlord had talked to him and he said no.

So... I called the landlord. "Well I didn't know it was going to be there that long." and "Just smooth it over with this guy" and "it's a small town and everyone just wants to get along, you know?"

IN short, I'm getting ZERO fucking support on this. I'm pissed, I won't be renewing my lease here (which is pretty upsetting) and I may move out earlier. All because I took the word of someone who I thought I could trust to be on the up-n-up.

Ultimately, I suppose I should have followed up with the owner independently, but I believed the landlord, and besides I didn't know who owned the property.

I'm disgusted, let down, feeling taken advantage of, and frankly I can't afford any more money to bleed out of me. I guess he stole himself a trailer.

Now, the latest...

I was supposed to get a call back last Friday from the property owner telling me how much he was going to extort from me to get my own property back charge me for towing and storage. I never got the call. I let it go the weekend. I called and left a voice mail Monday taking some of the advice I'd been given on the matter... This morning I spoke to the property owner again, and the trailer is coming back to my house tonight or first thing tomorrow morning, no fees, no charges, etc.

Done and done.

I honestly expected him to roll it out front and leave it on the street. I should be thankful he's at least bringing it back to my driveway. It's only 5 blocks away, so I'd just push it if I had to. I need to get a tow-capable vehicle again at some point.

I'll run down in the Jeep if you need to drag it somewhere. I don't have it wired for trailer lights but that shouldn't be a big deal for an in-town move.

Thanks. I may beg you for that. The trailer is going to Wayne's and his coming to get it is dependent on his success at getting back from the airport in some reasonable time frame.

... left on the wrong car. In the rain.  :facepalm:

I'm not joining in the cop bashing that so many seem to enjoy, but I have to say that part of it was pretty damned unprofessional and poorly handled.

He should have called you.  I would have.  A note other then to call you is bush league.

Thanks. I may beg you for that. The trailer is going to Wayne's and his coming to get it is dependent on his success at getting back from the airport in some reasonable time frame.

I have a Tundra with the tow package if you ever need to borrow it.  I don't have any actual tow accouterments though.  Like the ball, lock, chains, etc....  But it has a light hook up.  I think it's like a 7 pin?  10?  I know my buddy used to use an adapter for his 4 pin trailer.

Well goodonya for getting it back without the whole court business- that can be a PIA.  I know a guy that seems to be always in drama or court about something- in all honesty he's a bit of an ass.  I'm glad that was the case with the guy you dealt with- despite his douchebaggery. 

Good ending.   :thumbsup:

Just saw this for the first time. Maybe I should lock my trailer which is just sitting next to my garage mostly covered by a green tarp...

Glad you got it back. Go buy a used Futura.
