Police recover hundreds of thousands worth of stolen items

Man arrested at South Salt Lake home

SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah (News4Utah) - On Tuesday, police converged on a home where they say hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of stolen items were being stored.

Those items included jet skis, trailers -- even expensive items like cars.

"It's just unbelievable, I've never seen anything quite this large," said executive officer Gary Keller with South Salt Lake Police.

Police arrested 38 year-old Anthony Lee Cantrell, who lives at the home as a renter.

They originally were called to a trailer, parked on the street, that turned out to be stolen.

"We've contacted a lot of grateful owners that are grateful to have their property back," said Keller.

On Tuesday, the home was a busy place. Police were processing the scene, even as victims they had called showed up to pick up their stolen items.

"It's a hardship on a person to have to go through this," said Paul Ord, a Bountiful resident whose trailer was stolen back in August.

On Tuesday night, he was able to pick up his stolen trailer and drive it home.

"I can't believe it," said Ord.

"Everybody I talked to about it said, 'oh, you'll never see that trailer again'."
