A Mocksville man was arrested last week, accused of losing control of a stolen trailer.

According to a press release from the Davie Sheriff’s Office, Samuel Dean James, 43, of US 64 W., was charged with trespassing, larceny, damage to property, driving while license revoked, and hit and run. James received a $1,000 bond and has a court date of June 6.

Chief Deputry Brian Jacobs reported that deputies arrived on the scene soon after a utility trailer was stolen from property on Fonso Way, and learned that James was the suspect.

They had found the trailer on the side of Junction Road, where it apparently had become unattached from the pulling vehicle and went off the road, striking a mailbox.

Deputies found James soon after that, he reported.
