Crime Stoppers has joined the search for clues in last month’s disappearance of utility trailers from both a local construction company and a residence, as well as a recent home burglary.
On Sept. 14, Larry Bass reported a 10-foot utility trailer missing from Ford Construction Company.
The trailer has 3/4-inch pipe railing, a mesh rear ramp and steel plates in the center to hold spare tires, as well as flooring and sides covered in wire mesh. The frame is a pop-up travel trailer.
In addition, a trailer was stolen from Leon Turner’s home at 1103 Edwards St. in Union City between 12:15 p.m. and 1 p.m. Sept. 20.
The trailer is a 10-foot single-axle, tilt, two-wheel model with lights and fenders. It was taken while chained and locked to a post.
The estimated value of the two trailers is unknown, according to police.
The home burglary highlighted by Crime Stoppers was discovered Oct. 9, when Roy Caldwell arrived home at 912 North Division St. in Union City to find that the door had been forced open.
Caldwell noticed that his camera and television/DVD player, valued at $400, had been taken, police reported.
To provide information about these crimes or other crimes, call Crime Stoppers at 885-TIPS (885-8477) or e-mail Crime Stoppers at ucpd@ci.unioncity.tn.us. Tips may be worth rewards up to $1,000, according to Union City Police Chief Joe Garner, coordinator of the local Crime Stoppers program.
