Angling Trade Magazine is reporting that several Colorado fly shops have been targeted by a "well orchestrated" band of thieves.
"Suspects are two couples, Middle Eastern or Latin in appearance, well groomed and dressed fashionably. One couple distracts the store staff while the other steals merchandise. Suspects have called ahead and verified that you are indeed a specialty fly shop. Cell phone area codes that have been used are (402) and (815). A Maroon passenger van with an Illinois license plate # K714 248 was used by the suspects."
