Small businessman seeks help finding stolen canopies
Michael Leslie Swan, owner of Coconut Rockets/Bermuda Flyboard, is appealing for help finding two canopies that were apparently stolen from his West End beach concession.
Mr Swan says the canopies cost $2,000 are an integral part of his business at Black Bay Beach, near the entrance to Dockyard.
They were being stored in two large black carry bags about 6' x 1' x 1' in size when they went missing from the beach.
He has reported the apparent theft, which he says occurred within the past couple of days.
Mr Swan recalls seeing a vehicle driving out of Dockyard with what looked like a black canopy bag/s on the roof, as he was doing a corporate event on Saturday.
But he thought nothing of it, not knowing his canopies were missing at that point.
Mr Swan appealed for the person/s who took them to “put them back”.
“I just want them back,” he said. “There is nothing anyone can do with them anyway as they are fully branded with Coconut Rockets printed all over them.
“We are a brand new small business trying to get off the ground, and to have something like this happen is killing me. We are creating something good for Bermuda and this happens! And now we are entering the off season.”
