Crooks are now stealing propellers from boats for the salvage value. The boats were stored at Boatsmith Marine on Kellogg Avenue. Both of the propellers are stainless steal. One of the victims tells you can buy a special nut which makes the propeller harder to remove. He did not own one at the time of the theft, but does now and if you own a boat it might be something you should think about. If you have any information that may help investigators call Crimestoppers at 352-3040. You don't have to give your name and could get cash for clues.

Gas drive offs now total hundreds of millions of dollars. When someone pumps gas and doesn't pay it costs all of us. A UDF in Milford got ripped off at least four times in one week recently. An Association for Gas Retailers reports those rip offs result in even higher gas prices for you. If you're thinking about stealing gasoline, remember most gas stations, including UDF's are taking your picture. If you are caught stealing gas the state will take away your drivers license in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
