Thieves stole a cargo trailer and then abandoned it, police say, theorizing that the culprits were looking for something valuable inside — which there wasn’t.
The 2012 Interstate enclosed cargo trailer was locked when it was stolen from the 100-block of Pacific Avenue, sometime between April 16-22.
The trailer’s owner spotted it elsewhere in the city on Tuesday, with the padlock cut off. It was otherwise undamaged.
Police say there was nothing of value in the trailer, but suspect that the thieves were hoping for tools or construction material.
They continue to investigate the theft.
