24-year-old Gregory Morton of Stuart may have thought he went far enough way to pawn more than $35,000 worth of fishing equipment he stole from two Martin County fishing boats, but he was wrong.

Martin County Sheriff’s Detectives were quickly able to track Morton and retrieve much of the stolen property.

Morton stole the poles and reels from the boats earlier this month.

He pawned the items at a shop in a neighboring county.

Detectives were able to track the property, later tracking Morton.

He was booked into the jail on charges of burglary, grand theft, and dealing in stolen property.
