On August 1, Deputies investigated a theft in the 5400 block of W Joy Road. The victim reported that they had not seen their trailer in about a month. The victim waited to report the theft, thinking they may have loaned the trailer out and forgotten about it. The victim later realized that the trailer had been stolen.
Deputies also investigated several Identity Thefts throughout the month where accounts were opened in the victim’s names without their permission. The cases have not been linked together, and no suspects have been identified.
