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.

This article could use some editorial help...

First of all, unless this was the tractor from Bob the Builder, it can't really be suspected of theft.

"The four men were riding in a white Ford Focus but Jose Canaura-Ferriero later was identified as the owner of the tractor."

The author of the article provides this final paragraph without any context what-so-ever.
Were the men caught by the police? Why were they pulled over? Where and when did that occur? Were the men in possession of an unusual quantity of perfume at the time? I assume the Ford Focus was not towing the stolen trailer, right? Whatever happened to the trailer? Were they charged with stealing that also? How did the trailer and/or contents get from Botetort County to WInchester? The article would lead one to believe that the these men towed a stolen trailer all the way from Botetort County to Frederick County, a distance of 150 miles, using a farm tractor! Didn't any of these questions come to mind when the article was being written, edited and published?

I have to laugh at Ryank, apparently he/she does not know what a 2004 Freightliner Tractor is. It is not a farm tractor, it is the cab/truck with the engine in it as well as a possible sleeper.

If you are looking for the probale cause that intiated the arrest and siezure, maybe you should contact the Police or atend the trial.

I think the artilce was quite informative without putting us to sleep.

Probably not, the editors were too worried about a pictrue of a duck on a lake in Charlottesville to be worried about something that happened locally.
