Before taking any vigalante action, think about a couple of things:

1) We don't know who "Detective" is, other than an anonymous poster on the 'Buzz, or whether his motives are sincere

2) We don't know how current the address info in a DMV database is or if the guy that ripped off has moved a few times since he got his tags, and

3) We don't know if the guy that ripped off the boat owned the vehicle that was traced - its possible that the thief borrowed a buddy's vehicle to go sell the boat.

Right now the lawmen should have enough to go on to bust the guy. Leave it to the pros, if the person listed above is indeed the thief, it'll al be public record eventually.


Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

I wouldn't be too worried, no one needs to do anything to this guy. He'll get his soon enough. I talked to the case detective yesterday. They caught up with our wrangler buddy and he's giving his statement mid week. It's hard to prove he's the one who lifted the kayak. But, he his busted for receiving stolen property and trying to sell stolen property.

I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.

Thanks Don & the Confluence Crew

Nice work and follow through on this one Don. Glad to hear that he was tracked down and won't be pulling any more of this kind of thing if he knows what's good for him.

I know everyone else has said it.. but thanks for the headsup Don. It suck that there are assholes like that in our community. Sadly, I am going to have to be extra careful and change some of my usual habits. I am a chronic cartop kayaker. Just seeing the kayak up there makes it feel like I am ALWAYS about to go kayaking.

That's good to hear they caught up to the thief!

I had skis stolen from the roof of my truck after coming back from snowmaking at Keystone back in 91. I was in school at DU and was snowmaking during winter break and came home about 2am. Woke up at 6am to see my skis gone and my rack busted. Man was I bummed......

Now I am glad that my kayaks fit inside my vehicles, making them a lot tougher to steal. That and my Aussie guards pretty well.
