Angry LJ Sunday - Thieves among us!!!!!

Short story:
Fished from 5am-noon, plenty of bait (all types) around but rusty water and no fish for me.

Landed at La jolla shores with a few other familiar faces around 1pm Sunday afternoon and the beach was a zoo. I went straight to get my truck while the others where still on the beach.
When I drove up to the beach the guys stopped me and said they just saw some girl grab my Hobie peddles and jump into a truck and take off!!


Vehicle Description:

Late 80's (square hood/fenders) Ford F150 Brown/white trim
(also got the lics#)

Perp:
White Male mid-late 20's
shaved head
large tattoos on chest

He had an older GREY Hobie outback with the old style rudder that sticks out the back...and of course "his" nice new 2010 peddles (with the little bungie to keep the padded peddles inplace) .



Long Story:
So I guess when we landed the thief approched one of the other guys (who also had a hobie) and asked if he knew anyone selling the peddles drives. The guys talked for a while, apparently the thief is also a kayak fisherman (errrr!!!). He (the thief) had his truck parked on the sand with his yak in the back, but he also had a girl with him so I'm not sure if he actually was fishing or just casing the place?
Anyway everyone went about their business and I guess a couple minutes later they saw his girl with the peddles quickly walking off the sand and up the street to the truck which was now on the street ready to leave. Thankfully they got the dudes Lic# so hopefully the police can find the guy.

I'm guessing someone knows this guy or has seen him before, he sticks out like a sore thumb and I'm sure he'll be around...keep an eye out for this guy, he did this in the middle of the afternoon, at high tide, with no less than 100 people around and 3 or 4 of them where people I know! At this point he's probably thinking "geeze I sure could use some more rods!!"


OHH yeah....once again a big huge THANKS to the guys at HOBIE and FASTLANE SAILING for getting me back on the water.

Un-fking believable

This boy needs to be taught a lesson!

It's not like there wasn't thieves in "the good old days"
we just dealt with them differently

It makes me noxious to hear this kinda of stuff.

My 2cents: I was in the Navy for many years and when someone whom i lived with in a 80 man berthing compartment stole my scivvies I learned that anything is up for grabs.
I have had rip offs at the launch so I never leave the launch without taking my pedals and rods if I could find a way to take my bait tank I would or just start using my wheels more. Be careful everyone.

Hope you told them it cost more than $480. That makes it a bigger crime grand theft.which makes it a felony .
I have a feeling the kayak they had was stollen as well.
Good luck

Scally I was hoping you would post something. There are some images of him and his chick at the triangle.

I was the guy who noticed what happened. I spoke with another member who helped me get the photo of the guy. Guess his vehicle never shows up on the cam.

Big Tattoo on his chest. His hobie is an 03 outback it should be pretty easy to spot him if I see him again. Also not to many of those outbacks have the V2 turbo fins. He just lost his LJ privileges. Here's a photo. The other red arrow is where scally had his revo. Also this is a smilar picture of the truck

I hadn't noticed his chick until I saw a girl walking down the street with turbo fins. As soon as I seen her get in that car I took off trying to get the license info. Hope you can get these back.

Message to Theif...Return IT!

I think we should bring that back. Massively f-d up. A lot of bad things can happen to a person on the water. Long ways to shore too...

There is definitely a silver lining in this story: the kayaking community at LJ knows you and has your back. Getting the license plate is huge, hope the police take it from here.

I doubt the cops are going to do much....I tried handing them a video of the Dbag who walked into my driveway and proceeded to steal the 600.00 spare tire/rim off the back of my Wrangler, they wouldn't even take the DVD video I made for them. Of course I didn't have a plate # so that may change things a little.

Hope somebody catches this little bitch, I bet he thinks he is slick shit right about now...

Man that blows.


Scally and Ibsurf, please make sure that you run a "refresh" post about this every month or so. Make sure the truck photo is included each time.

This idiot is probably thinking that he can wait out the "heat" a little.

There should be no launch that is easily available to him ......


Regular refreshers to "boil our blood" are needed.
