Crime Stoppers December 25: Alabaster utility trailer theft
Crime Stoppers needs you to help identify two men wanted for stealing a utility trailer from an Alabaster house located on the 1000 block of Highway 87.
It happened October 8th around 4:40 pm. Both suspects' pictures are posted to the right of this story.
Detectives said the suspects pulled up to the house. The first suspect got out of the black Chevrolet truck, whose picture is also posted to the right of this story, and knocked on the house. Authorities said when he realized no one was home, the suspects stole the utility trailer.
"If these individuals are willing to come on to private property and wander through their yard, take whatever cutters are necessary to cut the bolt and the lock that's on the trailer itself, and then hook up the trailer and drive off with it, they're going to be willing to go into anybody's yard and property to steal anything they can see," said Sgt. Brian Allison.
