The trailer is made from aluminum, so it's lighter the the usual steel trailer, and it had a number 9 sticker above the back right wheel.Posted: Jan 22, 2020 8:16 PM

The Limestone County Sheriff's Office is asking for your help after a trailer was stolen. Investigators said it was stolen from a home on Huber Road in Elkmont.

Bruce Jansen, the homeowner, said he is in disbelief his trailer he uses to haul his race car was stolen from his home.

"The fact they did it in broad daylight it's just insane," he said.

Jansen said the trailer cost about $6,000.

"When I left it was cold, and I left my German Shepard in the garage, so that he wouldn't be cold. Yesterday afternoon sometime probably around 3:30 i get home and my 20 foot trailer is gone," he said.

Jansen said the trailer was sitting in his driveway, and he's hoping somebody drove by while it was being hitched to someones vehicle and can come forward with information about who took it," he said.

Without his trailer, Jansen said his team will be left without a way to transport their race car to the next race.

"We have a race coming up February 1st and 2nd, and now I'm not really sure how we are going to get the car there," he said.

Jansen said he hopes the bold criminal is caught..

"When somebody comes on your property and you're not home and they steal something that's very precious to me, it's something I use quite often, it's very frustrating," he said.

Jansen's disappointed that someone stole the trailer that he worked so hard to buy.

'I work at times up to five different jobs and try to make sure that I have a vehicle that runs and drives. Yeah, I have a race car, and that's something that's nice to have but that trailer is a big part of it and you know i work all of those jobs to help with that hobby," he said.

Jansen said the trailer is made from aluminum so it's lighter the the usual steel trailer and it had a number 9 sticker above the back right wheel. If you see it you are asked to call the Limestone County Sheriff's Office at 256-532-0111.

 In 1971 J. Standard Baker Quoted " Drivers Towing Trailers  Are Four (4) Times As Unsafe As Those In Cars Alone! 

Our supporting claim: Not a single agency is willing to compile data or statistics like we are in developing certified data on stolen trailers.  Most people will not report a stolen trailer because they know the trailer they were towing was stolen.

14 States have no registrations for trailers and using our data on the news reports we have developed this analytical summary.

It is factual that:

3,007 counties
As of 2016, there were 3,007 counties, 64 parishes, 19 organized boroughs, 10 census areas, 41 independent cities, and the District of Columbia for a total of 3,142 counties and county-equivalents in the 50 states and District of Columbia.

So we can assume that at least one trailer is stolen in each county weekly but to be safe we will use 1,500 counties in the United States has at least one (1) trailer stolen each and every week which I beg anyone of you to not accept our hypothesis.

Not a single insurance company and not a single government agency wants to challenge me on our assumptions.  I dare anybody to challenge me. 

So here it goes.
