Theft of trailer from Moncks Corner business caught on camera

MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) - Moncks Corner Police say the theft of a dump trailer from a construction company was caught on surveillance cameras.

The break-in happened early Thursday morning at WR Controls on Merrimack Boulevard. The surveillance video shows the suspects driving off with the trailer hitched to their car.

The business owner said the thieves cut cable and a lock to get to the trailer.

"There's a lot of people who use that same trailer and if they can make a buck off of it they'll get it," said Ernie Richburg.

Richburg's son said he is sure the crooks had been staking out the place.

"They went straight to the trailer, they didn't look at anything else and they went straight to it and they knew how to haul it off," said Bryan Richburg. "It's a heavy duty trailer so they needed a heavy duty hitch."

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111. You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
