ALBERTVILLE, Ala – The Albertville Police Department is warning of an increase in utility trailer thefts.
Monday, the police department posted a message on Facebook saying it’s always helpful to have a VIN or other markings that can identify a trailer. Albertville Police also said locks alone sometimes aren’t enough since trailers reported stolen often have the locks cut.
Police suggested to keep trailers inside a fence if possible, or covered or chained up – anything that could make noise or take time to remove. You should also call Albertville Police immediately if you notice anything suspicious.
