The cargo trailer that was reported stolen earlier this week has been found less than two miles from where it originally went missing.
The trailer housed a finished handicap ramp that was on its way to be delivered when it was reportedly taken by a dark colored truck.
The witness, Brian Kerbs, who recognized the trailer from News10 NBC’s footage earlier this week, said that the black trailer was sitting unclaimed in the far corner of the parking lot of his company’s business on Lee Road. When police arrived they looked inside the trailer and discovered the ramp material.
Miguel Millan, the owner of the trailer, says that about 30% of the materials are missing. He’s already alerted scrap yards around the city so they can be on the lookout for the stolen material.
“If they try and cash in a month or two months from now, they’re still going to be looking for it, so we’ll catch them,” says Millan.
Millan says that the customers who originally needed the ramp will have it installed early next week.
