ORANGE PARK, Fla. – Detectives are working to find a thief who drove away with a stolen boat on July 4 in Orange Park.

The boat was taken around 6 p.m. July 4 from a home on Tanglewood Boulevard, the Clay County Sheriff's Office said.

Detectives said it appears the thief attached a red Nissan Frontier truck to the trailer hitch and pulled the boat and trailer out of the yard and drove away.

Still photos taken from nearby surveillance cameras show the red, 4-door pick-up truck towing the stolen boat, a 15-foot, 1986 model, gray/white/red Tide Craft.

A photo of the stolen boat as it appeared years ago was also provided by detectives. The current condition and colors of the boat and motor are faded.

Anyone who can help identify the suspect, the red truck or who has any information about the current location of the stolen boat and trailer is asked to contact the CCSO at 904-264-6512. Detective Randall Cox is the point of contact.
