The person who stole a trailer from Portland business Buns on the Run left behind a pretty big clue: scrape marks on the pavement leading right to it.

Police responded to the 300 block of Southeast 91st Avenue at 4:30 a.m. Sunday on the report of a stolen trailer.

The utility trailer had been secured by the owners, police said, but the thief managed to drag it nearly a mile. It was found by following the scrape marks on the ground to the 8800 block of Northeast Holladay Street.

Police said a suspect ran away from the scene and remains on the loose. He is described as a white man, 6' tall and 170 pounds. He was dressed in plaid knee-length shorts, a dark T-shirt and a dark baseball cap.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Jason Hensey at

Buns on the Run is one of the original participants of the Hollywood Farmers Market and the trailer is important to their business operations, according to Portland police.
