Big-rig trailer stolen in Macon

An east Macon trucker who parked an 18-wheeler trailer in a lot along Gray Highway reported the trailer stolen Saturday.

A Bibb County sheriff’s report estimated the trailer’s value at $15,000.

The truck driver, 61, said that on July 24 he parked the trailer in a shopping center parking lot in the 1300 block of Gray Highway between Captain D’s and Waffle.

The driver, who lives nearby but had nowhere else to park the trailer, said he’d been in the hospital. When he got out Saturday, he went by and saw the trailer was gone.

The word “Osborn,” the name of a trucking company, was on the side of the trailer, the report noted.
