Boaters return to ramp, find trailers towed


Several boating enthusiasts found themselves stranded Sunday evening in Palmetto, Fla., when they returned to their launching place and discovered their cars, trucks and trailers were towed to south Sarasota.

A local tow truck company arrived on the scene with approximately four tow trucks around noon on Sunday, and over the next hour they removed at least twice that many vehicles and boat trailers that were parked on the private lot across from the Palmetto public boat ramp. Several of the owners had been parking there for many years.

A local realtor said the incident was the property owners’ last resort to a yearlong problem.
