INNISFIL - South Simcoe Police were called to a boat retailer in Innisfil on Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017 for a theft of a boat motor. The employee reports that after closing time around 6:45 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 24, 2017, a vehicle was seen slowly driving by the shop. Soon after, a suspect is caught on camera walking up and down the fence line, then jumping the fence into the lot looking at a number of different boats and motors. After jumping back and returning to his vehicle retrieving a bag, he re-enters the property and starts to remove a Mercury motor from the back of a boat. The suspect car was seen leaving at this time but then returns to help the suspect put the stolen motor in the vehicle.
