Nearly $7K in fishing equipment stolen from boat outside Arky’s Live Bait & Tackle in Miami

MIAMI (WSVN) - A man is asking for the public’s help after a thief was caught on surveillance video stealing thousands of dollars worth in fishing equipment from his boat in Miami.

The security footage captured the subject as he rummaged through the vessel outside Arky’s Live Bait & Tackle, located along Northeast 79th Street and Seventh Avenue in Miami, Wednesday afternoon.

The thief can be seen pulling his vehicle behind the parked boat and taking the gear out from the vessel, at around 4 p.m.

The victim said the crook got away with nearly $7,000 worth of fishing equipment while he went into Arky’s to buy some bait.

“I’m a little frustrated that some of the local businesses have the cameras, and none of the camera’s surveillance works, so it’s very hard to personally have to go through this,” he said, “and I just want justice, and I want all my belongings back.”

If you have any information on this theft, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
