>I wanted to update your membership on the wave of recent boat burglaries in marinas along the Delaware Bay. Troopers assigned to the Bivalve Marine Station made an arrest two weeks ago as a result of tips/leads that were contributed by your membership.

>The suspect in this case had been selling fishing gear at the U-Sell Flea Market in Vineland at a considerably low cost. He would "sell out" in a matter of minutes. Surveillance was conducted and he was located, questioned and subsequently arrested on the possession of stolen property. The Bivalve personnel recovered over 70 rods/reels and additional equipment.

>We are asking that all members of The Bass Barn continue to be aware of their surroundings and help our investigation. We know that this subject did not perform all these burglaries alone, and he invoked his Constitutional Rights; therefore, we do not know who is aiding him.
What we can say, is that YOU, The Bass Barn members should take action to protect your equipment. We have had difficulty in identifying the proper owners due to the lack of Identifiers.

>You should mark your equipment with a permanent marker or a paint pen. Identify your equipment with a mark that is unique to you. (Name, nickname, boat reg #, boat name, etc). I recommend that you do NOT engrave in the rod. I do not want to see the integrity of the equipment comprimised.

>As I mentioned before, there are still subjects in the public that are involved, and you should remain diligent in being aware of your surroundings. If you see anything suspicious or have a tip or lead, please contact the following:
NJSP Bivalve Marine Station 785-1330
or WWW.NJSP.ORG/MARITIME

Great work!!! Thanks for the update. Now we have one small favor to ask:

Next time you get one of these dirtbags, can you bring him by the marina for some of the effected victims to do a little 'personal identification' on the guy before he is processed?? ;) ;)

Nice work gentlemen. We gotta' remember the police need our eyes on the job too, and not just at the scene of the crime. If we see something at a flea market, e-bay etc that looks like a "steal", well, it probably is.

What's involved in making a "citizen's arrest"? Can one "defend" his/her boat by knocking somebody's lights out? Can physical force be used to subdue someone (i.e., citizen's arrest) while waiting for the police to arrive?

Good job by the NJ SP and Tpr I Brian A McGuire #5078. This dude did alot of shopping, wonder how much he sold before being caught? I remember leaving the car window down to run into a store, now you'd be lucky your car was there when you came out.:rolleyes:
