The caller took the phone to a nearby business and then called the cops.

Police contacted the boat owner to make sure he hadn’t removed the motor. He hadn’t, and confirmed someone had stolen it. Officers then attempted to find the cell phone’s owner.

They tracked the cell phone to a Parachute man who said the phone was stolen from a Clifton fast food restaurant earlier that evening. The man said he was no where near Eagle at the time of the motor theft and provided a gasoline purchase receipt to back up his story.

Police would like to speak with the anonymous caller to glean additional information about the theft.
