St. Louis County Sheriff’s Department Makes Arrest In Marine General Fishing Lure Case [Update]
Here's some good news: The St. Louis County Sheriff's Department has made an arrest in the stolen Marine General fishing lures case. On October 7, officers located the missing lures in a storage shed in Morgan Park. A few days later on October 13, the St. Louis County Sheriff's Department arrested Matthew Cuypers for felony theft in this case.
Although some of the missing lures remain unaccounted for and charges could be pending on other individuals, the arrest helped the store recover more then $25,000 worth of merchandise.
The arrest stems from an August crime in which more than 3,000 fishing lures were stolen from a warehouse location for Marine General.
According to the sheriff's department report, an enclosed trailer was stolen on that date from a location in rural Duluth that Marine General uses for storage. The lures were being stored inside of the trailer.
The lures were made by Brad's Killer Fishing Gear and carry the marking "Lip-Stix 3D". A variety of colors are included in the haul.
