LAKE LANIER — The Hall County Sheriff’s Department is trying to find the rightful owners of what officials call a “sizeable amount” of fishing equipment the department recovered while executing a search warrant last week.

The items are believed to have been stolen from docks on Lake Lanier over the summer, generally from the Hall/Forsyth County line to the area of Lumpkin County Park. The area includes shoreline in Dawson, Forsyth and Hall counties.

Investigators recovered the following items last Friday, July 26, while executing a search warrant.

• 34 rods with reels
• 5 Lifejackets (in one clear case)
• 22 tackle boxes
• 1 small blue kayak

Victims may contact Investigator Atkins to make arrangements to claim their property. This includes victims who may not have initially filed a theft report.

Atkins can be reached at (770) 533-7728 or matkins@hallcounty.org.
