KISSIMMEE, Fla., Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said officers recovering a stolen trailer from a man's yard discovered he was building a "doomsday bunker" from stolen trucks and trailers.

Investigators said they made the discovery at the man's Kissimmee home while recovering a trailer that had been stolen from the Clay & Sons tire and automotive store. Police spokeswoman Stacie Miller said officers determined the man was likely planning to add the stolen vehicle to the "doomsday bunker" he was building in his back yard, the Orlando Sentinel reported Wednesday.

Miller said officers discovered the man had a stolen food truck buried in his back yard with a stolen trailer parked above it. The spokeswoman said the man told police he planned to cut a hole in the bottom of the trailer to act as an entrance to the subterranean truck.

Miller said the man's name and age will be released once police determine what charges, if any, will be filed against him.

"You can have your doomsday bunker if you want," Miller said. "You just can't make it out of stolen materials."
