Milford – Troopers are investigating a theft of a trailer and a burglary to a nearby house that occurred early Tuesday morning, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier

Fournier said at around 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday October 4, 2016,  an unknown suspect pulled into the parking lot of Hitch RV, located at 2152 Bay Road, and backed up to a travel trailer where he hooked onto it and drove away.

The trailer was later located approximately a half hour later at a residence in the 5000 block of Barratts Chapel Road where the suspect unhitched it and left it in the yard, Bratz said.

The 31-year-old resident of that house was awoken by his dogs barking and soon learned that his house had been broken into and his cell phone was stolen, according to police. A silver pickup truck was seen driving away from the house westbound on Barratts Chapel Road.

Troopers said they were then alerted to a residence in the 4000 block of Barratts Chapel Road that a white male subject was attempting to gain entry into the house but was unable and departed in a light colored pickup truck.

The vehicle depicted in the surveillance photos from Hitch RV appears to be a silver or grey pickup truck with a red and white four-wheeler in the bed. The operator is described as a white male, 6’00”-6’01” tall.
