Florida doesn't like Disc Divers who do not return discs..

Please see this article about Florida police with this opinion from the police:
"The police agreed that since the plastic had the owner’s name on the disc that the harvester was, in fact, stealing. Taking plastic is against the law in South Florida. "

We should check the laws in our home states.

for all the police know-- the disc divers are cleaning up litter that the person on the disc had once abandon .

so stupid to call someone a thief before they have been proven guilty.

It's not an "article" if it's someone's personal blog...and rule number #1 of the internet...just because it's on the internet doesn't mean it's true.

There is a douche I ran across the other day who was stealing discs from a pond. I say stealing because he has, on two occasions, refused to let me look through the discs he found to see if any were mine. He also gave some bogus line about how he was on a local board monitoring the lost and found thread (which hasn't been active since May 2013) and returning the disc when people post up. I asked him what his user name was and he didn't have one. Big surprise he wasn't interested in returning them to the local DG stop for in-store credit.

I only go in there when I throw one in there. Any that I pull out besides mine get returned to the owners or dropped off at the lost and found in the local DG shop.

Guess the diver could call the cops on the other illegal activity going on?

Oh wait, doesn't go both ways?
