PORT CHARLOTTE, FLa. — Charlotte County deputies say they were able to arrest a theft suspect thanks to a tipster.

The sheriff's office posted this video on their social media of a driver of a truck with a stolen trailer taken from Port Charlotte.

The trailer contained some tools for construction work worth $6,000.

Someone called the sheriff's office after seeing the video.

Thomas Pusey was arrested and charged, and deputies recovered the trailer.
