Writer offers reward for stolen trailer
web posted September 23, 2010
I must say that this is not the same county that I came to love 40
years ago when I moved to Edgefield County. There seems to
be a new law every month , that limits our freedom and the
constant stealing that is going on and the crime in the
county makes me wonder if I have entered another world, maybe I am
in New York City and just don’t know it?
An example is, I had trouble with my small golf cart trailer on highway
23 West of Edgefield about two miles while pulling it to my farm today.
Since the fender was bent against the wheel, I left it beside the road
while I went back to my house, three minutes away to get a tool to work
on it and somebody loaded it up and stole it before I could return.
In less than 8 minutes someone loaded it onto their truck or trailer
and took It.! Do people think that something left even for less than
ten minutes on the side of the road is fair game? It belongs to
somebody and no one would leave a $2000 golf cart trailer without
returning for it and it was evident that it needed to have work before
it was ready to travel again. Some thief simply stole it! This has made
me angry enough that I would pay $500 for information leading to the
arrest and conviction of the thief.
I have heard people say that they found something on the road before.
If you do find something, that isn’t yours, leave it alone, someone
will be back to get it. If you saw a pickup truck on the side of
the road, it does not mean it is left for anyone to take it. It means
somebody will be back sooner or later to get it or repair
it and take it home.
If the person that took it reads this and will return it, there will be
no problem, but if the law catches them first, I do plan to cooperate
in the prosecution of the thief. Anyone that reads this or maybe saw
someone loading it up on highway 23 will phone me I would appreciate
Please be on the lookout for a pull type golf cart trailer with small
balloon tires. It carries two to three people in the front. A
green padded flat seat with no rear seat. This is custom made and
very few were made so it is easily recognized and had a small area
for carrying items behind the seats. If anyone sees a
trailer like this please contact me, I am in the phone book.
