Boat Theft Lerryn Village - Appeal for info
Wednesday 19th August 2009
If anyone saw anything relating to this theft......in broad daylight then please call 01208 871066 asap so we can pass the information on - meanwhile please take extra care of boating equipment there is currently a spate of theft going on in Golant, Fowey and now sadly from our village.
Could you please look out for a 2 man - 7ft inflatable Plastimo dinghy, grey with blue floor and varnished slats and transom & several round patches, which was stolen yesterday (Tuesday 18:08:09) sometime between 7.30 & 17.00. It was moored on the Lostwithiel side of the bank on our Wingletang / Morvran mooring and tied secularly with half hitches, so it didn\\\'t just float away.
This was done in broad daylight and our hunch is that it was possibly done with a transit van on the lane.
If by chance anybody saw anything or you see a drifting dinghy on your travels which resembles the above, it might be ours.
River theft as you know is on the increase again this year & seems to be well organised, so be warned.
Many thanks for any help. We\\\'ve reported this to the Police & contacted the harbour master via email.
All the best
Heulyn & Ginny
