Up the creek with a paddle…

Oh and a life jacket…

On the night of Tuesday, July 31, offender/s have entered the Inskip camping grounds at Rainbow Beach and approached a campsite.

The offender/s have stolen a bright yellow 14ft Wilderness kayak along with a paddle and red and black life jacket, which had been left a few meters from the victim’s camp site.

The next morning other campers had reported to have minor property stolen so it seems the light-fingered thieves did a quick canvas of the area before leaving.

The offender/s could have potentially been camping themselves or just passing through to see what was available, one thing is for sure they didn’t hang around with such a distinctive coloured kayak in fear of being caught!
