SPRING VALLEY LAKE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — An investigation into a stolen trailer resulted in the arrest of two suspects and the recovery of over a dozen vehicles stolen from the Spring Valley Lake area, officials said.
At about 7:00 AM on October 11, 2020, the owners of a 2020 box trailer called dispatch and reported their trailer was stolen during the night from outside their home in the 13300 block of Yellowstone Avenue.
