Teamwork between local police departments resulted in the recovery of a stolen trailer and arrest of the wanted thief.
Thursday evening, Noble County Sheriff deputies and an Avilla K-9 Officer responded to a report of an attempted theft in the Avilla area.
The person who made the report was able to get a description of the vehicle the thief was in, and police say the description was provided to surrounding police agencies.
Then, a Kendallville officer saw a vehicle matching the description and pulled it over.
The officer found the vehicle was pulling a stolen trailer and arrested suspect Raymond Lothamer. Lothamer faces charges of conversion and driving while suspended.
The Noble Co. Sherriff Department said the situation was "a great example of quick teamwork amongst our Deputies, the Kendallville Police Department, and the Avilla Police Department."
