Todd Coningsby, 53, came to work the morning of February 3 and found that the lot adjacent to his business, where he stored his boats had been broken into. The burglar can be seen on security video as he arrived in a white Ford F-250 and cut the lock on the fence to again access to the green, 19 foot, 1996 Hewes Flats fishing boat parked inside.
