Dail’s Wrecker Service of Ravenden was called by Sheriff Yates to the scene, divers from the LCSO Dive Team secured cables to the heavily damaged trailer and it was recovered by the wrecker.

The trailer was said to be storing tools for the construction site, divers were able to recover several items from the water. The trailer was heavily damaged by the thieves and was towed to a secure location in Ravenden where it will be processed by the Criminal Investigation Division next week.
