Neighbor Chases Thieves Who Stole Trailer

SPOKANE, Wash. - A Spokane man chases down a thief attempting to steal his neighbor's trailer.

Around 11:00 a.m. Tuesday morning near Clark Park off North Division, Chris Willden was coming home when he saw a small pickup truck about to drive away with his neighbor's trailer, which had 3 four-wheelers inside.

"I was turning onto the side street to come home and I saw a really small pickup pulling a big trailer and I said that's not right. Then I realized that's my neighbor's trailer," said Willden.

He immediately got suspicious. Realizing he didn't have a cell phone on him he decided to follow the trailer. When the thieves realized they were being followed, they started driving recklessly through the Hillyard area. The pick-up finally crashed through a fence and jumped a curb causing a tire to blow and the pick-up to stop. The two men ran from the scene.

Chris managed to find a phone and call police. He then called Ron and Charlotte Schell who couldn't be more grateful to have their trailer back.

"How do you thank somebody for doing something like that for you. I mean he took a big risk," said Charlotte Schell.

"I was of course furious at what had happened but at the same time was just elated that someone had involved themselves and taken that chance to chase them down," said Ron Schell.

The Schells are very relieved to have their trailer back, but say they're even more relieved knowing a neighbor is watching out for them.
