This past Sunday two Waverunners were reported stolen from their respective docks on North Lakeshore Drive in Brookfield. Police say that makes a total of 4 Waverunners have been stolen from Brookfield this boating season.
Several more have been reported stolen from other towns surrounding Candlewood Lake. Police from the area towns are working together to recover the waverunners and identify a suspect.
Brookfield Police are asking for the public's help. Anyone seeing a Waverunner being towed after dark is asked to call police. While it's not uncommon as they often break down, or that it's after sunset, but it could be suspicious. Any North Lakeshore Drive residents with a security camera recording from the overnight hours on August 24th is asked to share the footage with Brookfield Police.
Anyone with a Waverunner is encouraged to secure it with a chain and lock. Home security and portable trail cameras can help identify suspects. A low-cost GPS capable device, such as a Tile, could help with recovery.
