A Rydal man lost a refrigerated trailer to someone who towed it right out of the yard where it was being stored.
A Bartow County Sheriff's deputy was called to the scene on March 28, almost a week after the theft. Once there, a witness said on March 22 at 3 p.m. an unknown suspect in a royal blue Ford F-150 drove up. The driver said he was waiting on the trailer owner to arrive so he could pick up the refrigerated trailer. A half hour later, he was knocking on the door of the residence, telling the witness he was on the phone with the trailer's owner, who he claimed said to open the gate.
The witness opened the gate, and a tow truck out of Calhoun picked up the trailer and left.
The trailer's owner arrived, and said he was selling the trailer at Adairsville with "Stan." He told Stan nothing was to leave the yard until he was paid for two other trailers sold to Stan.
He also said he had not called the F150 driver or anyone else to give permission to open the gate to the yard and take the trailer.
