Brazen thieves have again targeted Inskip campers

THIEVES have struck again at the Inskip Point campgrounds, making off with a kayak, paddle and life jacket on the night of Tuesday, July 31.

Police described the kayak as a bright yellow 14ft Wilderness kayak along with a paddle and red and black life jacket, left a few meters from the victim's camp site.

The next morning other campers had reported to have minor property stolen so it seems the light-fingered thieves did a quick canvas of the area before leaving, police said.

The offender/s could have potentially been camping themselves or just passing through to see what was available, one thing is for sure they didn't hang around with such a distinctive coloured kayak in fear of being caught!

Police would like any members of the public that know any information about this incident to contact police.
