A 35 foot Everglades boat with three 350 HP Yamaha engines on the back was stolen from a Key Largo storage lot overnight between Thursday night and Friday morning. The boat was recovered in Medley, Florida and investigations into who took it are ongoing.
Deputy Edward Askins took a report of the stolen boat Friday morning. An employee of Gus’s Toy Box at the 104 mile marker of the highway showed up and found the side gate to the business open, an empty boat trailer used to block the entrance was moved and the boat had been stolen.
The boat, engines and the trailer they were on were all entered into both the Florida and National Criminal Information databases. Sunday afternoon, the Sheriff’s Office was notified the boat, intact with the engines and trailer, were all recovered by the Medley, Florida Police Department. Detective Bob Dosh has been assigned to investigate the case and will be working with a Medley Police detective in an effort to identify the person or persons responsible for the crime.
