IS YOUR TRAILER SECURED?

- By Tanya Brjnak

Over the past few months, there have been a few trailers stolen from various locations around town.

Matt Hunt, Sergeant of Heathcote Police Station stated, “Please keep a record of the trailers VIN, as this may often be the only identifyin­g feature if the trailer is not required to be registered.”

Securing your trailer on your property is also very important. Good quality and heavy-duty chains and padlock are essential to prevent your trailer from being stolen.

VIN’s are generally located on the chassis or drawbar of the trailer.
