Detectives investigate ten boat burglaries in Marathon

Sheriff’s detectives are investigating burglaries to ten boats kept at Marina Mike’s South on Avenue I in Marathon.

The burglaries were reported Friday from the manager of the business who said he had noticed a number of vessels were missing electronics and he believed they had been burglarized. Eight of the vessels were rental boats belonging to Tropical Boat Rentals; they were all Carolina Skiffs of various sizes. Two others were private vessels, a 32’ Parker and a 23’ Cobia.

The manager said he thought the burglaries had taken place since Wednesday. Detectives responded and processed the location for evidence. They are still working to compile a list of specific items taken. The investigation into the case is continuing.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact the Sheriff's Office substation in Marathon at 305-289-2430. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys. If a Crimestoppers tip leads to an arrest, the caller would be eligible for a cash reward. The Crimestoppers hot line number is 1-800-346-TIPS.
