Sheriff’s Office look into fishing equipment thefts

Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the theft of fishing equipment taken from boats in different sections of the county.
Sheriff Jim Davis said it is "doubtful" the thefts are related because they occurred in different locations, including in Pulaski, Dublin and at Claytor Lake. None of the boats was on the lake at the time of the thefts.
The sheriff estimated "well over $3,000" worth of fishing rods and reels, tackle boxes, fishing lures, and other fishing equipment were taken.
"Fishing items are quick to steal and easy to sell," he said.
Some of the thefts are believed to have occurred over the past three to six weeks. However, Davis attributed the sudden report of similar thefts to the fact people are starting to prepare their boats for warm weather and are just now discovering the items are missing.
He encouraged boat owners to inspect their boats and report any thefts or vandalism to the sheriff’s office at 980-7800.
Anyone having information on the case, such as someone attempting to sell a lot of fishing equipment, is asked to call the local Crimeline at 980-7810.
