Frog legs stolen from Old Glory$2000 REWARD-Now over $7000

Post by newoldglory » Fri Mar 29, 2013 7:11 am

14 pounds of frog legs were stolen from my freezer during the last week. I don't look in the freezer every day so I don't know exactly what day it happened. The legs were in 1 pound bags frozen in water and in an aluminum roasting pan.Of course they took the pan and all. The legs were large, jumbo and extra jumbo size. I know it was just a mater of time before this happened and it's my fault that the freezer was not locked. I'm offering a $2000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the theives. The camp is posted but that don't matter to a thief.

That is embarrassing that one of our own would stoop so low to steal food...and not because they were hungry.
God saw them and hopefully the hidden game camera got a picture of them. :wink:

So sad that the few are able to ruin things for the many. They will probably do it again Gerald. It would cost less than 2 grand to instal a good digital monitoring system. These days they make them in all wireless for the cameras and you can even check in on them from your smart phone. Hope ya find them cause there aint nothin worse than a theif.....especially one that would steal your food. They had to come by airboat so it isnt like they couldnt feed themselves.

Wow Gerald you have never been anything but hospitable to me when I have stopped by so I really hope you can get to the bottom of this so a jerk doesn't ruin it for everyone! I was planning on bring my kids and one of there friends out there in a couple hours to say high and take some pics on the roof if that's still ok in light of these events. They are 2 to 9 and oves frogs but only alive ones so they're safe lol.

Hate to hear this Gerald; it is the new breed won't even call them Airboaters (Scum) we are experiencing the same type of problems at the Camp on Kramer Island. Hope the BUZZARDS get them. :angry5: :angry5:

WTH, Can't believe it, look around, probably got other stuff too. Glad I got some legs from you before it gets shut down. Keep the faith Gerald, most of us are good people, I will throw in 250 bucks to the reward if it helps! You all reading should pony up, getting some justice will be a good insurance that it doesn't happen again, possibly to you. GB

That's messed up I am still a youngin but I've been out and around Area 2 for the past ten years and it amazes me how the people have changed out there... Seems like since they close holyland and 3a to 4wheelers every drunkin yahoo has gone out and bought an airboat... There is a serious lack of respect especially for area, camps, and camp owners

Not cool. Gotta think too, you have been lucky to have made it this long with no problems. Didn't you put some poison in one of those bags for times like this. Some one is going to get SICK!!!

sorry to hear it!!! it's got to be somebody who knows you and what is around your camp.

whatever u do, don't involve the pd, they are useless without pictures. it will come out who it was eventually, and you don't want to be considered the prime suspect when they showup missing.
the camera monitoring is a great idea, just don't go telling anybody where the camera is.

good luck and God bless.

Yep, so sorry to hear about this, a two legged snake has been there. A lot of loving labor went into those legs.
With the hospitality you have given to folks, :salute: this was a low, low down thing to have done to you.
When I hear something like this, I start thinking about a chain, lock, gag, sharp knife, bolt cutters, (finger, toe size), molar pliers, just to start the first day off good. Yep, Indian mean, my Cherokee blood comes boiling up. :angry5: Abuse of kids, animals causes a quick steam up too.

I hope to came to the glades, slide around a little before I take a dirt nap, I guess I better get moving on my bucket list.

I was just out in my backyard cleaning my pool (my therapy) and I looked over at my boat in the yard and I was thinking about Gerald and his frog legs that mysteriously walked away, and I mentioned earlier that this is something that Gerald spent time out hunting them and cleaning them, but I forgot to mention the FUEL that it takes to keep a freezer going.....its not just the legs to me, its everything as a whole....shame on that thief

Look at that story on the news the other night, a guy in N Miami was trying to break into a commercial lawn service trailer behind a locked fence.....the home owner heard the thief and came outside, shot and killed the thief.......then the thiefs family and the news people were trying to say that the thief didn't have to die over "lawn equipment".........trucks off the Alley.......airboats in Lake Placid......when did it become "OK" to go help yourself to something that someone has WORKED HARD FOR???????
