NICHOLS HILLS, Okla. — Nichols Hills Police are investigating an expensive trailer theft. Surveillance video will help solve the case. Last Thursday a thief targeted a home under construction at 1812 Guilford Dr. in Nichols Hills.
Security technician Derek Meyers was working at the home when he saw a man attempt to steal a hydraulic construction trailer parked out front. At the time, he didn’t know the man was a thief.
Meyers says, “He wasn’t suspicious at all. I guess that’s why he drove around twice. He backed up to the trailer like he owned it. I thought he must work for the contractor or something.”
Police says, two days later the very same white pick-up truck came back to the scene and stole an $8,000 hydraulic trailer.
The church next door caught some surveillance video of the suspect’s truck casing the scene.
Nichols Hills Lieutenant Casey Nix says trailer thefts are uncommon in Nichols Hills.
Nix says the trailer was locked.
“Somehow the thief got around the lock. Also, it had two flat tires. So, he either filled the tires or just managed to get it anyway.”
The suspect’s truck is a white F-150 or F-250 with beige on the bottom.
The owners of the trailer, Hallman Group Commercial Construction, are offering a reward for the return of their $8,000 trailer.
Call Nichols Hills Police if you have any information that might help solve the crime.
