CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)–A man in West Ashley says that his trailer was stolen from his employers property in broad daylight. He believes that the thief is also responsible for similar thefts in the low country.
News 2 reported on a string of stolen trailers with one suspect common, the driver of a white van.
Security cameras across the parking lot seem to reveal a van matching the description leaving the scene and pulling a trailer.
The owner of the trailer is a subcontractor for John Griffith Hardwood Floors. He says that there was nearly 22,000 dollars worth of hardwood flooring equipment inside the trailer at the time. He now has to borrow the tools he needs.
He says, “That’s my livelihood. It’s everything that I’ve got. Without it I wouldn’t be able to work.”
Police have not confirmed if the thefts are related, or if any arrests have been made in connection.
