The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and Portland Police Bureau investigated the theft and recovery of a stolen semi tractor trailer, stolen during a burglary from ABC Supply at 1835 NE Columbia Blvd. in Portland, Oregon.

At 8:15 a.m. on June 22, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to meet with an employee from ABC Supply who had located ABC Supply's stolen 2007 International semi-truck and trailer -- which was now parked the Fred Meyer parking lot at 8955 SE. 82nd Ave.

The employee had used a GPS tracker system to assist in tracking and locating the stolen vehicle in the Fred Meyer parking lot.

The employee said the trailer had been loaded with roofing shingles -- but they were gone at the time the truck had been located.

The Sheriff's Office learned from the employee that (according to his GPS tracking system) the truck had been parked in the 8200 block of SE. Sherrett St. for a considerable amount of time before being moved to the Fred Meyer parking lot.

Deputies drove to the area on SE. Sherrett St. to look for the missing roofing shingles.

A Sheriff's Office Sergeant found tire tracks in some gravel that resembled the ones belonging to the stolen semi-trailer.

The tire tracks led to an address on SE. Sherrett Street.

Deputies made contact with the homeowners, who gave the Sheriff's Office consent to search the area -- which ultimately led to the recovery of the six full pallets of roofing shingles that had been stolen from the trailer.

The Sheriff's Office notified the Portland Police Bureau, which is protocol when one agency assists another in their jurisdiction. The two police agencies worked together to assist ABC Supply employees -- by hand-loading each heavy bundle of roofing shingles back onto the semi trailer.

There have been no arrests in this case at this writing, and the incident is still under investigation.
