UPDATE 2: The boat and operator have reportedly been identified.
UPDATE: A $500 reward has been offered for identification of the boat or operator.
The owner of a pontoon boat allegedly crashed the boat into a private dock and then made off, according to the property owner.
The boat sustained damage (above) and would be easy to spot, say observers. The incident happened at around 9:30 a.m. and then the operator of the boat reportedly headed north before he could be stopped.
“If anyone here in Parker knows of or sees a pontoon boat that is smashed up in the front please let us know!” said Brandy Martin, owner of the property. “They caused about $5000 worth of damage, also we just had kids here playing on the dock and swimming in front of it, thankfully no-one got hurt.”
La Paz County Sheriff’s Department is reportedly looking for the boat owner and can be contacted by calling (928) 669-6141.
