Farm find: Police recover trailer stolen in 2007

Talk about persistence. Police in Kent, U.K, have recovered and returned a pickup truck trailer that was reported stolen from a rural area nearly 12 years ago.

The small hauler was discovered in a field 25 miles away from the scene of the crime last week after investigators made a “breakthrough” in the case. One man was arrested, but released without charges, according to SWNS.

The trailer was stolen from a rural road in Ashford in Sept. 2007.
