BEND, OR -- A 40-year-old Bend man is accused of stealing at least three utility trailers in a scam that targeted unsuspecting residents in southwest Bend. Police say Dustin Mooney told the victims his son crashed a drone in their backyard. The resident would grant permission to retrieve the drone and then go back inside, only to later find their utility trailer gone. 

 

Mooney allegedly conducted the scam at homes on SW Porcupine, SW Hollygrape and Powers Road, March first and second. He's been cited for Theft I.
 
Investigators say he sold the trailers, ranging in value from $500 to $4,000. Only one has been recovered.
