NORTH FORT MYERS- Sheriff's deputies make a "big catch" after arresting two teenagers accused of burglarizing a tackle shop.
Lehr's Economy Tackle co-owner David Westra says,
"Well I never thought we'd get it back, when places get broken into you don't get it back."
30 pairs of designer sunglasses, pliers, and fishing reels- stolen from Lehr's Economy Tackle in North Ft. Myers.
" 53 years in the community, and you're trusting of a lot of people and a lot of things, and you don't think it can happen to you."
Early Wednesday morning deputies say thieves broke in through a window and stole 82 hundred dollars worth of fishing equipment, but not everything stolen had great value.
"The surprising thing was some of he insignificant things that were taken."
12 hours later, he got a call from deputies.
"I got a call from Detective Hood from the sheriffs dept on the north side and he said "Dave I got good news" and I said , "what's that?" He says, "we caught the guys." I said, well great, and he said, "I got better news that that. We got your stuff back."
Two teenage boys we're not identifying because of their age were seen fishing with the brand-new equipment. Someone got suspicious and called law enforcement.
