Man Sells Trailer He Borrowed
A man borrows a trailer from his neighbor then turns around and sells it. Investigators say Fredrick Hoffman borrowed his neighbor’s utility trailer promising to return it within a few days. After several failed attempts to get the trailer back, the neighbor reported it stolen. Gadsden Police arrested Hoffman and found a receipt showing he had pawned the utility trailer on the same day he borrowed it. Hoffman is charged with theft of property and is being held in the Etowah County Detention Center on a $5,000 bond.
