Cell phone snares Ky. theft suspect

A Kentucky man who tried to sell a stolen trailer was easily tracked after he left his personal phone number on his for sale listing, according to this report:

When an officer found [Gerald T.] Ray in the 7300 block of S. Jenevieve Ct. Tuesday afternoon, he refused to answer questions about where he or the trailer came from -- but the victim was able to identify his trailer by certain markings, despite the fact that Ray allegedly spray painted it.
Then the officer had the alleged victim call the cell phone number on the Craigslist listing -- and Ray's personal cell phone started to ring.
