A trailer left on the side of the highway for less than an after was taken by crooks. The thieves knew what they were doing because of how fast they were able to get away.

It was along I-96 in Novi and the trailer had to be left because the driver blew a tire. He and his three sons decided to unhitch the trailer to grab a part needed and a safety vest, but when they returned, they found an empty shoulder.

Jason Bradshaw was hauling brand-new tractor tires on an open bed trailer. Tires he had been saving for months.

When the tires went flat, he didn't have any other option except to leave it, get the equipment he needed and then repair it.

The thieves either made a speedy getaway with a flat tire or quickly changed it on the side of the road.

He did make a police report and police are checking tow yards. If you believe you saw anything, please call Novi police.
