Tips from Taco Bell surveillance video led to the identification of a suspected trailer thief, but Gulfport police still need the public's help.
Police released security video from the restaurant's drive-thru March 28 showing a man in a Ford F-350 ordering food on March 4. Police Sgt. Clayton Fulks said the man later stole a trailer from a business in the 16000 block of South Swan Road.
The truck seen in the Taco Bell drive-thru was also reported stolen, Fulks said.
On Monday, police identified the suspected thief as Jason Eugene Conaway. Fulks said an arrest warrant has been issued for the 39-year-old, who is described as being 5-foot-11, 200 pounds with green eyes and brown hair. He said Conaway also has a teardrop tattoo under his right eye.
