Fort Myers Boat Thief Steals $300K Sportsman Boat, Flees in Chevy.
Breaking news! It seems like we have a new contender for the most audacious criminal in Fort Myers – a boat thief who drove through a storage gate in a stolen 31-foot Sportsman boat with twin outboard motors, valued at $300,000. And the best part? He was caught driving a Chevrolet. Talk about being inconspicuous!
According to NBC2, Silvestre Romeo Romero, the man behind the heist, must have had a lot of confidence in his boating skills to pull off a stunt like this. After all, it’s not easy to navigate a 31-foot boat through a storage gate without causing any damage. But hey, when you’re on a mission to get your hands on a fancy boat, anything is possible.
I can’t imagine the look on the faces of the officers who received the call about the robbery. I bet they were expecting a typical break-in scenario, but instead, they got a boat chase. It’s like something out of a movie!
Fort Myers Boat Thief:
Thankfully, the police were able to catch up with Romero and conduct a traffic stop at Hancock Bridge Parkway. I’m sure they had a good laugh when they saw him driving a Chevrolet with a 31-foot boat in tow. Maybe next time he should invest in a bigger vehicle if he plans on stealing boats.
Romero is now facing multiple felony charges, and I don’t think he’ll be able to argue his way out of this one. I mean, who steals a boat and drives through a storage gate in plain sight? That’s just asking to get caught.
All in all, this has been a hilarious yet eye-opening experience. It just goes to show that criminals come in all shapes and sizes – even those who are bold enough to steal a boat and drive it through a storage gate. I can’t wait to see what other shenanigans the Fort Myers criminals have in store for us next!
