Southborough man arrested after stealing kayaks from Hopkinton State Park

A Southborough man was arrested this week after police said he stole more than 17 kayaks from Hopkinton State Park. The man was tracked down thanks to GPS devices placed in the kayaks.

Police said the man was apparently selling the kayaks – valued at about $20,000 in total – from the front of his Boston Road home. You can read the full story in the Metrowest Daily News.

The commenters on MetroNewsDaily.com are nasty.. Is that a regional newpaper or specifically a Frammingham site?

I have not seen them but one of the rules is that you aren’t supposed to “bash” anyone or make personal attacks. If you email them, they will sometimes take those down. That family has a history of hardships and illness. There is no telling what we all would do for our family, not that this was right. Glass houses – and I am not saying I think he did the right thing. I feel bad for the children in the home.

Right, I almost never read people’s comments on those news sites – because they are so nasty and hateful. They make things even worse (in my opinion)

It is a regional newspaper but there are some repeat offenders who seem to have nothing other to do than bash everyone and everything on that site. Their screen names and associated nasty comments become recognizable and predictable.

I did read the comments, and they seem reasonable-sprinkled in with some obvious humor and nonsense. This is a story about theft, greed, and outright brazen disregard for a neighbor’s money, property, time, and business.

I am truly glad that Boating in Boston was able to discover and stop the thefts and recover most of their boats. I find this to be a very, very sad story — sad for the Alexander family, especially the kids. Stealing isn’t right, obviously. That doesn’t make this story any less sad.

I remember driving past the address mentioned in the article and noticing some kayaks for sale. -glad I didn’t buy one!
