PARADISE, Calif. - A logger went to work Monday morning thinking he was going to be able to use his brand new trailer but it wasn’t in the same spot he left it the night before.

Cody Cade is the owner of LLC Tree Logging Service.

Cade tells Action News Now that without this trailer it is very difficult to work.

One thing the thefts left behind were marks in the sand from the trailer being dragged.

“It just feels gut-wrenching almost. You work to have the things that you have and someone just comes along and takes it and reaps the benefits of it and then you know you may never get it back or you get it back and it may be damaged,” said Cade.

It was taken in a big lot owned by Ed Eckert, J. L. Bailey property on Easy Street.

Eckert tells us that this isn’t the first time this has happened on this property.

“I feel awful because we just barley rented this spot to him were putting up in order to try and help it up were going to put up 300 feet of the fence so the area is more secure and just try to help out from there on whatever we can,” said Eckert.

He says now he will have to purchase another one that isn’t as nice as the first one.

Cade reported the theft to the Paradise Police Department. Investigators hoping that there is surveillance video of the crime at the nearby Mechanics Bank.

Action News Now spoke with Sergeant Robert Nichols of Paradise Police Department and he tells us three important things to do to help investigative work.

“Photograph your property, get serial numbers, if it has it record those that allow us to find and locate property and return it to the owners and that sort of thing and arrest the person responsible,” said Nichols.

He also told us that even if the Paradise Police Department is low staffed, they have been patrolling the areas.

“We’ll go out well check properties well look for… Especially on properties that didn’t have anything on it before and maybe they’re new to the area and/or squatting on the property we go investigate and find out what’s what and who's there that helps us gain information and figure out you know who’s the players are in town,” said Nichols.

Both Eckert and Cade know the police are working hard to secure the area in Paradise.

Nichols said they are hoping to have cam trails come around Paradise in the near future for situations like this.
