ST. MARTIN, MS (WLOX) - A Biloxi man is accused of stealing a trailer full of tools from a construction site in St. Martin. Investigators said it wasn't too hard to track him down - he left his wallet at the crime scene.
James Thomas Hudson, 27, is charged with grand larceny and faces 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Saturday, a 2006 Challenger enclosed trailer was taken from a construction site on Washington Avenue. Investigators found Hudson's Mississippi driver's license and his Transportation Worker Identification card at the construction site.
Jackson County Sheriff Charles Britt said when his deputies went to the address listed on the license Monday, they found both their suspect and the missing trailer.
Hudson was being held at the Jackson County Adult Detention Center pending an initial court appearance.
