Aircraft Tampering

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

Sometime between 4/6/8 and 5/10/8 someone deliberately poured a substance down the heater air intake of the Coltharp’s C-150 while in front of, or in, their hangar.
The substance caused smoke to enter the cabin while in flight. A precautionary landing was successful and the substance was discovered and removed with no damage or injury.

Would anyone in our airport community who has seen suspicious activity during this time period or experience a similar event please contact Bill Coltharp or the Lago Vista Police Department at (512.267.7141)?
