Deputies: DeLeon Springs neighbors took Kolb for scrap

A DeLeon Springs man thought his missing, engineless experimental plane was stolen but declined to press charges after his neighbor came forward and said he had taken the fuselage thinking it was junk, deputies said.

Scott Lyons’ plane disappeared from the woods at 1229 Reynolds Road where he had kept the 20-foot Kolb experimental aluminum plane for several months, investigating deputies said.

Lyons reported the plane, which was 100 yards away and out of sight of his home, missing on Wednesday and said he was willing to prosecute whoever took the aircraft, a report shows.

In a follow-up investigation the following day, Thursday, Lyons told deputies that he had found his plane, a report states.

Lyons said there was no further need for the case to be investigated and wanted the case closed. Here’s why: Lyons told deputies it was a misunderstanding and his neighbors had accidentally taken his plane thinking it was scrap.
