Green Lake County Authorities Report Continuing Thefts Around Big Green

(Green Lake) Green Lake County Sheriff’s officials say thefts from boats and piers are continuing around Big Green. Chief Deputy Matt Vande Kolk asks that residents make sure to take all fishing equipment and valuables with them when they leave their boat.

Many of the thefts appear to be crimes of opportunity, so by removing your items and locking them up, Vande Kolk says the thief or thieves will not have any items to take. He adds that marine batteries are also targeted by thieves.
