Upper Keys deputies and detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects who allegedly stole nearly $4,000 in fishing equipment earlier this month from a boat at the Mariner’s Club Resort in Key Largo.
The theft took place on July 16, at 5:14 a.m. by two white males described as being either teenagers or men in their early 20s. Each suspect has a small build with brown, medium length hair and light facial hair. They wore light clothing.
