Stolen Construction Trailer With GPS, Leads Deputies To Suspects

As reported by WBRC Fox 6A man used GPS to track down his stolen trailer and lead authorities to the suspects, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said Monday.
Anthony Sears, 53, and Fred Bufford, 52, are both charged with receiving stolen property.
Jefferson County deputies say they got a call from a man Sunday morning reporting his work trailer with $50,000 worth of tools and equipment had been stolen from his work site off of Lakeshore Parkway.
The trailer had a GPS and the victim used that to track it to a residence in the 200 block of Allegheny Drive. He drove past the home and saw the trailer in the back yard.
The man then called authorities who came to the home and arrested two suspects. The trailer and equipment were returned to the original owners, and the suspects were booked into the Jefferson County Jail.
Sears posted a $10,000 bond. Bufford is still in jail on a $10,000 bond.
