WINCHESTER -- Authorities plan to seize a tractor they claim its owner used to steal a trailer containing more than $60,000 perfume in late November.
Frederick County Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney Ross Spicer filed documents in Circuit Court on Thursday, made available Monday, seeking the forfeiture of a 2004 Freightliner tractor owned by Jose Canaura. The county Sheriff's Office impounded the vehicle Nov. 21, according to a notice of seizure filed with the civil case, which includes an information document and a motion for default judgment.
"The defendant property was knowingly used by the owner thereof or used by another with his knowledge for the transportation of stolen goods, chattels or other property valued at $200 or more," the information document states.
Canaura, also known as Jose Canaura-Ferriero, 43, of West Palm Beach, Fla., is one of four other men from Florida charged in the Frederick County General District Court with grand larceny. Authorities accuse the men of stealing the trailer, containing Elizabeth Arden perfume worth more than $63,000, from a location in Botetourt County.
Authorities also charged Osvaldo Pedraza Rojas, 47, and Armando Canaura-Ferriero, 53, both of West Palm Beach; and Denis de Castro Perez-Lopez, 40, of Loxahatchee, with grand larceny.
The four men were riding in a white Ford Focus but Jose Canaura-Ferriero later was identified as the owner of the tractor.
