I'm sure we've heard all about the fly shop theft ring in Colorado by now, and if you haven't, here's a link. A few actually.
Here it is on the Chum
here is is on Angling Trade
and Finally Shannon's take on it
There's a lot o bad in the world right now, but fly shops? they've been all over Colorado now.
But that's not what this topic is about.
A fellow TFFer and Lake Fork Guide, Marc Mitchell, went to Bass Pro in Garland to pick up some tackle and stuff today around 2-3PM. He came out and his truck had been stolen. His truck is wrapped, covered in decals and everything, and his car was loaded with tackle, electronics, phones, all kinds of stuff. All stolen. There's been a huge ring of crime here lately, mostly because of it's proximity to the highway allowing criminals a quick get away and also it's lack of security in the parking lot. Something needs to be done about this, really. I'd like to find a way to get the city of Garland(they own the parking lot) to do something about the situation in that parking lot. It's gone too far.
Here's the thread
If you think anything can be done, by all means comment here or post it on that thread.
