Bounce house business hit by thieves for second time


They say lightning doesn’t strike twice, but for one Bay Area business man, thieves do.

Uncle Tucks Bounce Houses in Clearwater was hit by thieves who stole a trailer. 8 On Your Side first spoke to business owner, Chauncey Ward in 2017 when a mother-son duo stole some items from the company. It happened again just a few days ago when more thieves paid his business a visit. 

This happened at the business on 1680 Tilley Avenue in Clearwater around 11:00 p.m. last week on June 12. 
A pair of men can be seen in surveillance video tying up the trailer and driving off with what looks like a deflated bounce house in it.

Ward says this trailer is his business. It’s how he transports his bounce houses, water slides and landscaping equipment.

“It’s very frustrating. I work hard. I work 7 days a week, sun up to sun down and to have a trailer taken away from me, it’s very frustrating,” says Ward.

Ward is offering a reward to find the stolen trailer. If you have any information, call the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.
