Three Boca Grande teens were the victims of theft while they swam in the Gulf on the afternoon of Thursday, July 12. The teens left their cell phones on their beach blanket while they were in the water and when they returned 30 minutes later, the phones were gone.
The three phones ranged in value from $200 to $300.
According to Lee County Sheriff Office reports, the teens remembered seeing a man in his mid-40s on the beach during the time that the theft took place, though they did not actually see the phones taken. He is described as medium build white male, around 5’10”, with tattoos on his left arm and upper back.
The teens were advised to report the theft to their cell phone providers and given a case number for insurance purposes.
