Resident chases off prowlers breaking into trailered boat

Appears that your fishing/pleasure boats may have been safer in the water than on land.  A neighbor’s off of SW Angeline (4700 block of Beach Drive) thwarted an attempted theft by prowler(s) rummaging under the canvas cover of their trailered boat on Tuesday.  The incident was reported to the police but haven’t heard of any arrests. 

Probably a good idea to remove any semi-attached electronics, fishing gear, trolling motors, etc. off your boats this off- season. Keep in mind that thieves have no problem taking the transom along with your small outboards! Yes, I found out the hard way a few years back…
