A Corpus Christi resident is hoping to catch the thieves who worked under the cover of night to take off with his work trailer and everything inside.
Padre Island resident Kevin Kelley said he is offering a hefty reward for information that can help catch the crooks.
Kelley can't believe he did not hear a thing when it happened. He was just feet away, inside his home on the 14000 block of Goldfish, near Aquarius. Outside, a group of thieves hitched up his 10-foot work trailer and drove off with it.
He believes it happened between 11:30 p.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. Wednesday when the thieves made off with his trailer, along with all of his tools that were stored inside, all valued at more than $3,000.
Kelley said he usually parks his truck behind the trailer, but didn't do it Tuesday night. He believes the thief or thieves were staking out his home. He showed the tire marks on his driveway where someone backed in and hauled it away, despite having a trailer lock on the hitch.
"We are a remodeling company of 22 years on the Island here," Kelley said. "Do a lot of work in Port Aransas, had a lot of tools in it we were in need of. We are putting a $1,000 reward up just to find out who did this."
The trailer has the name of Kelley's company, "Fix it Right," printed on its side.
With no tools, it has affected his job, forcing Kelley to take the day off. He has been in contact with his insurance company, but wants the crooks to be caught so that the same thing doesn't happen to someone else. That's why he's offering a $1,000 cash reward.
