Thieves steal trailer full of expensive tools in Pompano Beach
POMPANO BEACH, Florida. – Alarms, security devices and cameras did nothing to stop a pair of thieves from stealing a trailer with thousands of dollars worth of tools from a local contractor in Pompano Beach.
The brazen heist happened on Saturday morning outside an industrial warehouse near Powerline Road and Copans Road.
The thieves took their time, even using a grinder to remove the trailer hitch lock, sending sparks flying.
All the while, an automated message from the motion camera system kept ringing: “Hi! You are currently registered.
The contractor, who asked to remain anonymous, said he parked his loaded trailers outside the warehouse ahead of a big commercial job in Palm Beach County.

“Basically anything and everything I would need for the job,” the entrepreneur said.
Cameras caught the duo in a white two-door van.
The owner said he was frustrated, adding that he was a hard worker and just wanted to be able to do his job and support his family.
