The SRSO indicated that since early summer, there have been numerous thefts in which the suspects have accessed the property through boat docks, piers and waterfront yards.
The thefts have occurred at homes on the Santa Rosa Sound, the East Bay and along the East River.
“During this summer, we want to remind those who own such properties to make sure you secure your items. Although we understand it is your option to leave your items out on your property, we would rather focus our efforts in catching the suspects. Please help us by securing your valuables,” SRSO Public Information Officer Rich Aloy said through a news release.
The Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to report any suspicious activity on the water. Call the Sheriff’s Office immediately or contact Crime Stoppers at 850-437-7867.
