By Bonnie Culverhouse

Webster Parish Sheriff’s investigators have arrested a local man for stealing a trailer.

Mark Tracy Patrick, 55, of the 1300 block of Middle Rd., Minden, is charged with illegal possession of stolen things.

Sheriff Jason Parker said the 16-foot utility trailer was stolen from Bienville Parish.

“Detective Michael Allen of the Bienville Sheriff’s Department contacted us with information that the trailer was located at the Middle Road residence,” Parker said. “Lt. T.D. Kemp Jr., Major Robert Hayden and Sgt. Marvin Garrett arrived at the location and spoke with Patrick.”

The sheriff said investigators asked Patrick if he had the trailer, and he admitted it was in the backyard.

“While Lt. Kemp talked with Patrick, Hayden and Garrett entered the backyard, with Patrick’s permission,” Parker said. “They checked the VIN (vehicle identification number) and license plate and verified it as the one that was stolen.”

Patrick, who was on probation for domestic violence in Bienville, was arrested and booked into Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
