Boat engines stolen

Bodden Town police are appealing
for information and urging people to be extra vigilant following the theft of
two boat engines.

On the 22 June, police were
informed that a black, red and silver coloured 15HP engine had been stolen from
a boat parked off John McLean Drive in East End.

On 23 June, a 25HP Yamaha engine
was stolen from a boat parked in Angel Close, East End. This engine has a blue
cover and a white propeller.

Chief Inspector Martin Bodden Jr.
said: “If you are a boat owner then please help us to reduce the chances of
your property being stolen. Secure your boats, and the engines, as best you

“I would also urge you to take a
note of any serial numbers on your property; take photographs and write down a
detailed description. Finally, if someone offers you a boat engine at a price
that’s just too good to be true – then stop and think. Taking advantage of that
once in a lifetime bargain could result in a hefty prison sentence. Handling
stolen goods is an offence contrary to the Penal Code and, if you are found
guilty, you could face up to fourteen years in jail.”
