Stolen trailer recovered
Good eyes, Task Force guys the scourge of the auto/truck bad guys.
Auto Theft Task Force officers in Comal County recently recovered a Great Dane semi trailer reported stolen in Canada.
The truck was located carrying produce along Interstate 35 about two weeks ago.
The owner-operator driver was arrested and his tractor trailer rig has been impounded by law enforcement in Comal County, according to Deputy Mykel Andaloro, who is assigned to the task force.
Sgt. John Bailey said in its current condition, the trailer is worth about $45,000. The seized tractor that was pulling the trailer is registered to the driver and has an estimated value of about $75,000, according to Bailey.
