CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Neighbors off of Gleason Parkway say they are always seeing workers coming in and out of their neighborhood. But when a white pick up truck pulled up to an open lot and began dismantling a boat lift behind the property, people began wondering what was going on. One woman called 9-1-1. While officers were on their way, the alleged boat lift thieves packed up their score and began to leave the area. That's when another neighbor, (her identity is protected by police), began following the suspects, giving officers turn by turn directions as to their location. The three men were caught and arrested.
