Re: Thief at Solomon Bay

on a more serious note -- people snorkeling at haulover had their car broken into last week (it was locked -- the person appeared to have a master key as there was no damage ) - and all the cash was removed from wallets left inside (shouldn't leave wallets... ) ..... so do be careful with your stuff
