At 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 26, the Victoria Police Department received a report of semi-transparent fishing line set across a dock, just off the Galloping Goose Regional Trail, near Regatta Landing. A group was walking in the area when they noticed the fishing line. It was two inches off the ground, ran across the dock ramp and was secured to the handrails on either side.
