Hailey Gillihan steals man’s $4,500 utility trailer & sells it on Facebook Marketplace


32-year-old Hailey Gillihan was taken into custody for theft on May 21st, 2024. On October 2nd, 2023, around 3 a.m., Larry Yarbro’s $4,500 black 16-foot utility trailer was stolen from his Salem Road residence. On October 9th, 2023, detectives were advised that Johnny Mabry had bought the utility trailer from Facebook Marketplace on October 6th, 2023, adding that he had a “strange feeling” that the trailer may have been stolen. Then, officers contacted Mabry, who provided pictures of the trailer, confirming it was Yarbro’s. He said he inquired with the user “Hailey Gillihan,” who posted it on Marketplace and arranged to meet at the Brownsville Walmart to sell it. Then, Mabry stated two white males arrived with a 16-foot trailer that was not the one they had advertised. This caused Mabry to become suspicious of them, asking why it was different, to which one of them replied, “This is my uncle’s trailer, who died and left it to me.” Mabry said that after he told them he was uninterested, they said, “Make me an offer. I need gas money to get back to Memphis,” leading to Mabry purchasing it for $600. He made the seller sign a bill of sale, who used the name “Dennis Silverman” with a Carter Road residence address. Detectives later identified Dennis’s real name as “Dennis Sullivan.” Officers then found reports of an intimate relationship between him and Gillihan. Mabry returned the stolen trailer to officers and identified Sullivan as the seller in a six-person lineup. Mabry noted Sullivan was “the one who did all the talking and the person he handed $600 to.” A warrant was issued for Gillihan’s arrest on October 16th, 2023. She was later detained for the occurrence on May 21st, 2024.
