Pearsall police have recovered a stolen trailer from Lytle nearly a month after owner Jason Garrett reported it stolen.
It was when police responded to a theft call near IH-35 on November 17 that Garrett told the officers his homemade 12-foot trailer had been taken after someone had cut a hole through his chain link fence.
According to Garrett, a 600-gallon vacuum tank was on the trailer; the trailer and its contents were valued at $7,500.
On December 4, investigating officers received a tip that the trailer had been spotted at a residence in Lytle. Once law enforcement arrived at the home on Old Pearsall Road, the homeowner took the officers to the trailer.
According to a report on the case, the homeowner stated a friend of his named Cowboy had left the trailer on his property after the man claimed he purchased it from a company in Pearsall that was going out of business.
Officers were able to match the trailer to sticker numbers that Garrett had provided them at the time of his report.
The suspect will be charged with a Class C misdemeanor for criminal mischief and a state jail felony for theft of property.
