On April 28, 2018, between 10:00 PM and 10:30 PM, the individual highlighted in the attached video was observed entering campsites and stealing alcoholic beverages. Several other persons were observed in a golf cart who dropped him off, waited while he burglarized several campsites, and picked him up after acquiring several alcoholic beverages.
While the target of these particular juvenile thieves appears to have been alcoholic beverages, it could just have easily been fishing tackle, fishing poles, expensive ice coolers, and any targets of opportunity found inside unlocked vehicles such as weapons, jewelry or portable electronics.
