KSAL StaffJanuary 11, 2019

A tip and two weeks of investigative police work lead to the arrest of a Salina man accused of stealing a trailer with a $42,000 generator onboard.

On Thursday, officers arrested 26-year-old Rafael Araujo in Salina after authorities found the stolen generator parked at a vacant residence in Minneola, Kansas.

The “Clarke” brand generator was stolen from Central Power Systems, located at 1944 N. 9th Street.

Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester tells KSAL News that agents with the Kansas Department of Corrections along with Ford County, Clark County and Salina Police Department officers assisted in the case.

Araujo now faces felony theft charges along with additional charges for absconding from his parole.
