Which authorities were called and who owns the investigation? I would like to know this.

really sorry to hear that, I need to tend to heat exchangers, I just have pure water in them right now and I can feel the rust forming.

This. I wouldn't have wanted the stuff back unless there was a crazy high deductible

The owner of UBS mentioned in passing to the OP's father that he was doing some electronic work on a boat that the owner got a 'great deal' on the motor -- why would he say a word if he were complicit?

I also don't understand why this isn't the insurance company's mess. If the OP has a filed a claim, don't the motors belong to the insurance company under salvage provisions? In which case why would the Wilmington PD tell UBS to return the motor to the OP??

I only know of one boat repair / service shop in Lumberton. It's on highway 41 east of town. I know the name but won't say because there is no proof that the claim is accurate.

Obviously wasn't rigged right if Mr good deal was seeking help from ubs. The entire situation is unfortunate. The only good thing that can come from this is hopefully 1 thief gets caught. Probably already in the system and knows there will be little to no time served if caught. Treading water with logging chain would be a better deterant

What about the owner of the Pro-line? Have they not interviewed this guy? Why wouldn't he be responsible for the bill of removing the engine? Couldn't there be possible charges for receiving stolen goods if he doesn't cooperate? In any case, I don't think shop B should've charge victim.

Any updates on this investigation that I honestly believe Scooby-Doo could have solved by now, even without the help of Fred and Velma?

Should be a lesson to anyone who might be a victim of theft in the future, that before any conversation with law enforcement, you turn on the voice recorder on your phone. If they show no interest in following up on the most obvious evidence, then maybe your next resource is a person with a public voice, and a keen interest in being seen and heard.

I have to think the lawyers have put a hush on any further comments. Although the THT investigators gotta be able to dig something up on what's happening.

hblac, I know of the place you are talking about. I have a friend of the family whose boat was hooked up and driven out of their yard, and straight to the mentioned place. The owner followed them their and confronted them, hooked his boat up and left to call the authorities. I have personally heard of "too good to be true deals" from there.

So is this boat repair/service shop in lumberton owned by the chief of police?

I'm still curious to hear more on this. If the investigation is dead, that is truly disappointing but at least explains a lot of what we've always heard about Robeson County.

I never heard back from the OP. Maybe he was more concerned with venting than actually doing anything about it, or like stated above his attorney had him hush, who knows? Hope he got something done by the proper authorities to bring some resolve.

Boat shops should always check the VIN #'s on motors brought in to rig.

Especially when: "He told my dad the guy had gotten a great deal on the outboard as well as the electronics, but that the customer said he did not to run any VIN #’s on anything because he knew they were “too good to be true”, but the customer didn’t care because he had “proper” documentation..........."

Confused ,
1- why would the guy whose stuff was stolen have to pay to have his stuff taken off another boat?
2- Is there a shop in Lumberton?
3-Is this where- sistm6- is talking about when they said a family boat was taken there, after being dragged off their property?
Surprised that an expensive item ( a new outboard) doesn't have to be checked before pulling from boat to boat.Other items, less expensive stuff, I can see being passed by.
This place in lumberton should obviously be shut down, if there is one, Somebody had to have asked why a spanky new engine is being taken off one boat, to be put on another.
BTW I have never had insurance on any boat I've owned. Just f--king hate to pay them for nothin. Maybe I should reconsider this. Here in the Northeast I do not hear of the thefts happening like Down south.

Is there going to be quiz in the end?

I did read though, a lot of " not sure there is a boat outfitter in Lumberton "
Still don't know why the guy had to pay to get his stolen motor off the Great deal guys boat, Or did I get that wrong?
Since you and you alone seem to be an expert , lay some knowledge on me.

There are several more chapters to the story. I don't know them all but they will eventually come on on here and other site. Original poster has new motor (and his old one), and new electronics. Saw this boat up close and it was a nice ride.

If you read, there is a shop in Lumberton, you can find it by using Google. We do not know if he actually had to pay to get the motors taken off. But the theory is that the boat dealer they were found at did not install them, someone else did. When a tech has to do something, it is counted as hours worked, someone has to pay for the labor. Why would the person who did not install them have to foot the bill to take them off?


Yes there are some holes, and yes all of these questions have been asked above, some of them have answers some of them do not.




I highly doubt if the full story will make it here, because once the people are taken care of then it just kind of fades away. It is one of those "don't bring it up" kind of deals. Plus there has to be a few attorneys at play here, and you know nobody talks when the attorney is around.

I doubt the full story will show up here as well, alot of missing information but I at least hope Justice will be served.

The reason in my eye why the shop should remove the motors without charge to the victim but possibly at the expense of the owner who had stolen motors mounted on his boat is because it doesn't look good for a business to have stolen property in their possession. The business may not have owned that boat or installed the stolen goods, but the stolen property was in their possession let alone the electronics inside their business shop I believe there is even laws that could be applied to businesses that are in possession of stolen goods.
