Spartanburg County Investigators say they recovered and returned over $50,000 worth of stolen property to its rightful owners after the arrest of two individuals wanted for trailer thefts.

Deputies say on January 3 they began searching for a blue Chevrolet Suburban after they saw it on video stealing several trailers in Spartanburg County. Further investigation produced a possible suspect who owned the described vehicle.

Investigators went to the subject’s home and observed the Chevrolet Suburban with an enclosed trailer attached to it. The trailer was open and filled with several thousand dollars of lighting fixtures, which matched the description of a trailer that was stolen from a business in Duncan earlier that day, deputies said.

Deputies then obtained a search warrant and were able to locate and arrests two suspects and recover over $50,000 in stolen property, which included the following:

  • trailer
  • lighting fixtures
  • 2 industrial size vinyl printers (stolen from another business in the county in December, deputies said)
  • approx. 15 propane tanks (stolen during another larceny in the city limits of Spartanburg, deputies said)

Deputies arrested Craig Steven Balfour, 41, and Kimberly Christine Gowan, 47, both of Spartanburg, in connection with the thefts. Balfour is charged with three counts of grand larceny and two counts of malicious injury to property. Gowan is charged with three counts of grand larceny.
