Gary Haines, 59, of Virginia, was arrested and charged with grand theft.

Friend of mine had a trailer stolen out of his driveway while he was at work, years ago.

You do not need an expensive airplane to spot whats going on at your house. There are spy camera’s you can buy which will transmit pictures to your iPhone/iPad/PC using motion activated sensors.

Love your graphic.

Also, I wish I could have seen the perp’s reaction when he found out how they caught him.
