SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police were able to recover a stolen trailer and the property inside within days for a man who was in the process of moving to be closer to his terminally ill son. 


On Friday, the Spokane County Sheriff's Office received a report that a large trailer containing tools and furniture had been stolen from a home in Colbert. The trailer was being used by a man who was using it to be closer to his son, who had recently been diagnosed with a terminal illness. 


Two days later, Spokane Police received word that the trailer may be parked outside a home in north Spokane, so an officer went over to the home on N. Whitehouse and found the stolen trailer. The resident at the home, 39-year-old Amber (Colvin) Johnson, told officers she knew the property was stolen, but did not contact the police. Johnson was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail on one count of 1st Degree Possession of Stolen Property. 


Officers spent hours hauling stolen items from the home back into the trailer, and then returned the trailer to its owner.
