A small utility trailer was reportedly stolen from a Cohulla Road address sometime this week.

According to a report filed by deputy Steve McCullough, he spoke with Joseph Jones who said the 5-by-6-foot black trailer was taken from the front yard of his residence.

The theft was believed to have occurred Sunday or Monday.

The trailer was described as having a steel mesh floor and a ramp.

It was valued at $400.

- Copper wire was stripped from a Johnson Road location and miscellaneous other items were also reported taken.

Krystal Garza said someone broke into her commercial building last week and stripped wiring, took an electrical panel, a table, a motorcycle, personal items and other property.

Two possible suspects were named in the report filed by deputy Kameron Cron.

The loss was estimated at more than $3,500.

Investigation is continuing.

- Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Driver’s License Roadside Safety Checkpoints in Bradley County beginning this weekend and through the Labor Day holiday, which runs through Monday.

The checkpoints will be set up in random locations in the county.

According to THP officials, checkpoints are an effective means of recognizing the dangers presented to the driving public by motorists who would violate the laws of the state.

All scheduled checkpoints are contingent upon weather conditions and manpower availability.
