MANGOLIA, TX -- On August 2, 2022, the Montgomery County Auto Theft Task Force (ATTF) was notified that Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office met with an owner who tracked his stolen trailer to the 9000 block of Carraway Lane in Magnolia, Texas.

Deputies and Detectives obtained access to the property, which appeared to be a mechanic/small “chop shop.” As a result of the investigation, Detectives located and recovered two stolen Ford F-250 trucks, along with two stolen trailers. The trailers were in the process of having the VINs removed and repainted. The estimated value of the recovered items is $40,000.

The suspect, identified as Carlos Aldava, Jr., was arrested and transported to the Montgomery County Jail, where he was charged with Felony Theft.

The Montgomery County Auto Theft Task Force is a multi-agency task force in part funded and trained by The Motor Vehicle Crime Prevention Authority.
