A 55-year-old Yucca Valley man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly being in possession of a stolen trailer.
Shortly after 7:20 p.m., the Yucca Valley Multiple Enforcement Team conducted a vehicle check on a white van with an attached black trailer in the parking lot of Dollar General at 55556 Twentynine Palms Highway in Yucca Valley.
The passenger of the vehicle, identified as Mark Jewett, had two active warrants for his arrest. A record’s check of the trailer was conducted that revealed the trailer was stolen out of Yucca Valley over two years ago.
Deputies discovered that Jewett was in possession of the trailer for over a year.
The legal owner of the trailer does not know Jewett and did not give him permission to have or take it.
Jewett was arrested and booked in at the Morongo Basin Jail and was being held on a $100,000 bail.
Anyone with information related to the investigation is asked to contact the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Morongo Basin Station at (760)366-4175. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may contact We-Tip at 1-888-78-CRIME.
