Deputies Looking for Boat Theft Suspects
The boat was recovered, but its motor is missing
Pasco County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for information on two suspects wanted in connection to a boat theft in Gulf Harbors that occurred last week.
Two unidentified people took a boat that had been tied to a dock in the water at a residence on Floramar Terrace, according to the Sheriff’s Office. That was in the predawn hours Jan. 8 or 9.
The boat was later recovered at Green Key in New Port Richey. However, the boat’s 15 HP Yamaha outboard motor had been removed and was missing. The motor is valued at $2,500.
The Sheriff’s Office is also advising folks to secure their fishing poles and equipment “As we have seen at least two cases in recent weeks of stolen equipment from docks in west Pasco County”
The agency released video Monday of the boat theft.
