Please keep an eye out our 18’ big Tex trailer with ca license plate was stolen yesterday morning at 520am. Truck was white/silver crew cab dodge with a Utah license plate. They smashed the gate and busted the hitch lock off and stole it. It was for sale yesterday in bull head city and we had a sting set with the az sheriff but the guy never showed up. Please keep an eye if spotted please call police. It has been reported to metro and we have a case number should anyone need it.

That’s a darn good pic of the plate. Shouldn’t be to hard to figure out who owns it
That’s what we’re hoping too not to mention the damage to the fence he caused too trying to get in the yard

I hate to keep saying it but if it saves one of us from these ass hole theives. PUT A TRACKER ON EVERYTHING WITH WHEELS. Spot trace is cheap!!!

We will keep an eye out for this trailer on our side of the mountains!

Will the Spot work buried deep in the trailer box under tools and such, I have two ViMetal trailers and want to keep them for my self?

What are apple air tags.
It's just like a tile, if you're familiar with them. For tile to work it needs to be within range of a device with the tile app. Apple air tags connect when anyone with an iphone walks by. If the thief has an iphone, the tag location will be wherever the trailer was left. Even without an iphone, another car driving by the trailer could pickup the bluetooth signal. There's also a "lost mode" that will ping you the moment an iphone/mac etc is within bluetooth range of the tag. Highly recommend you throw one of these in your tool/camera bag.

Hope you guys find you're trailer. You seem to be off to a good start.

probably not. I have most of mine mounted in plastic cases attached to the trailer somewhere. it needs to sense sats so putting them under stuff will hamper that
