• Brazen Daytime Theft of Trailer

Family from the Windsong Valley area of Wildomar is victim of a brazen daylight theft.

The video below was taken with a smartphone capturing the images that a motion detecting security camera caught at 6:13am, Monday March 7th.

The family only had the trailer, a 2000 Carson Racer, for two days. Inside were recently purchased accessories that were valued between $400-$500. 

The trailer's value is between $3k-$4k.

The trailer has two small black Carson Racing stickers. 14 ft long 6ft wide. Broken vent on top.

This trailer had a new hitch lock on it that couldn't be cut with bolt cutters. At this point it's still unknown how they got around the lock.

The owner remarked how quickly the criminals were able to hook up the trailer to their truck. A process that usually took him several minutes to do, they did in about 30 seconds.

A neighbor had seen a slow moving silver truck in the area the night before, possibly scouting the area for things to steal, but the rain prevented the cameras from capturing any images.

If you have any information, you're asked to contact:
Deputy Willow at 951-245-3300. 

Case number W1160670023.

It's a sad commentary that thieves are so calloused that they had no compunction in doing such a thing... even in broad daylight, as many people are using the streets to go to work.

This is what happens when we start slapping crooks on the wrist, with our new revolving door policies handed to us by Sacramento, instead of treating all crime as serious.

There isn't a lot that average citizens can do to prevent theft, other than to leave as few targets in view. Even with an anti-theft device, this trailer was stolen.

One thing you can do is attend the Neighborhood Watch meetings and be as vigilant as is reasonable. 

As it turns out, the next meeting is this week 

Thursday March 10, 2016 at 6:00pm, at the city council chambers, 23837 Clinton Keith Rd. (In the back, behind Fitness 19 and ACE Hardware).
This is our city, and if we want our neighborhoods safe, we have to do our part.

I certainly don't know if you could claim that every theft is wrong, but I'll prove to you that every theft is forbidden, by simply locking you up.
