Up A Creek Without A Paddle; Winter Haven PD Looking For Kayak Thieves

SHARE

The Winter Haven Police are searching for an Adult and juvenile who absconded with potted plants and a blue kayak from a Walmart in Winter Haven. The pair exited the store with the oddly unrelated combination of items and loaded them into a truck, never attempting to pay. Could they have been in a rush to landscape their fishing camp!?

The post from the Winter Haven Police Facebook page appears below:


What do a kayak, potted plants and these two people have in common? You probably already guessed – a theft from Walmart.

On 9-22-16 around 1 a.m., the adult male and a child, who appears to be 11 – 13 years of age, entered Walmart at 7450 Cypress Gardens Blvd. and took the unusual combination of potted plants and a kayak.

Obviously, they chose to not make any attempt to pay for the items.

They are seen in the video loading the items into the bed of a white pickup truck pictured below.

Anyone with information on the identities of these two is asked to call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477).

Callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a CASH Reward.kayak-theft-01kayak-theft-03-1
