NEW HAVEN — Police say three kayaks were stolen from Otter Creek along Twitchell Hill Road at around 7:45 p.m. in New Haven on Saturday.
One was a small, bright red single-seat, the second a small, bright yellow single seat, and the third a large, orange double seat.
The value of the stolen items is nearly $1,000 each.
Police say about thirty minutes prior to this incident, a vehicle with a bright red kayak on its roof was reported speeding southbound on Morgan Horse Farm Road in Weybridge, where the driver destroyed a mailbox.
