On May 5, 2016 at approximately 1:40 a.m., officers in the Southeast Crime Response Team responded to a call about two stolen tractor-trailers in the 5400 block of South Lamar Street. Officers met with the victim who stated that both of her tractor-trailers were fully loaded and had been parked in a lot in Grand Prairie. The victim was notified by security at the lot that the tractor-trailers had been stolen. The victim was able to locate the vehicles in the 5400 block of South Lamar, however, the loaded trailers were still missing.
Officers received information that the 2 stolen trailers may be in the 2800 block of Childs. Officers went to the location where they were able to see through a fence and identified the two stolen trailers. The officers got a search warrant for the property and recovered the stolen trailers along with the cargo that was inside. The victim stated that the value of the property in each trailer was approximately $250,000.
Due to the quick response and teamwork of the Southeast Crime Response Team, the victim was able to recover $500,000 in stolen property and locate a commercial lot being used to house stolen trailers and cargo. Thank you for your hard work!
