They say money can’t buy happiness. But, it can buy you a boat. But, James doesn’t care. Because he just steals boats. And the trailer they sit on. That’s why James Batson, 48, is our Turn ’em in Tuesday featured felon. He is wanted by Walton County Sheriff’s Office for grand theft and violation of probation after stealing a boat that was listed for sale in DeFuniak Springs. Just sittin’ on the side of the road. Minding it’s own business. Waiting for someone to buy it so they could go fishin’ and be happy. But, no. James likes to steal. So, now nobody’s happy.

Help us find James so we can make our victim happy. If you have any information on the whereabouts of Batson you are encouraged to contact the Walton County Sheriff’s Office at (850)-892-8111 or you can remain anonymous by calling Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at (850) 863-TIPS.
