A Bryan man found a homemade trailer that had been stolen on Craigslist. That led to an arrest by Bryan police. Officer Kelley McKethan says the victim filed the report on Sunday, then called back the next day reporting the online ad. The victim gave investigators specific information about the trailer, including where he had welded the jack, welded brackets to the rear gate, where another jack was broken, and that one of the wheels had a missing grease cap. A tool box also belonging to the victim was recovered. Police arrested 28 year old Douglas Dahlstrand of Bryan for theft. And McKethan says the theft and recovery serves as a reminder to have identifying marks on your valuables.
