LIVINGSTON COUNTY, Ky. - Along with a day of remembrance, Memorial Day is the unofficial start to the summer; and that means cook- outs, camping, and water sports.
For some vacationers at a local lake, this festive weekend took a sharp turn after thieves struck. "These are white bass" said Charles Wallace. He knows the secret to catching loads of fish at Kentucky Lake "we caught 28 to 25 on Monday."
But, he recently realized he's got a thing or two to learn about keeping your property safe. "I would hate to catch the guy that done it" he said.
State Police say under the cloak of night someone took at least twenty-five fishing rods and reels, several tackle boxes, two depth finders, numerous coolers and life jackets. "We've been talking to people and they are saying it's getting worse and worse every year" said Ken McGinnis, another victim of thefts.
