This isn’t a Burlington story – but it is both funny and a glimpse into how the police catch the dumber criminals.

On March 21, 2015, the owner of a 5 x 8 homemade utility trailer noticed it was missing from its parking spot on his property.

A short time later, the utility trailer, stolen from a residence in Halton Hills resurfaced on the Kijiji internet classifieds site listed for sale by someone claiming to be the owner.

The real owner confirmed the trailer listed for sale was in fact his. On March 25, 2015, Police locate the seller who was arrested and charged.
The trailer was recovered and returned to its rightful owner.

Steve Medeiros, 20 years of age, from Milton has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime.

Medeiros needs to brush up his social media creds.
