Country Name: St. Lucia
Location Detail: Rodney Bay Gros Islet
Stolen Items: Dinghy
DETAILS: A yacht anchored off Gros Islet had their dinghy secured with a painter and a 1 cm cable with a plastic sleeve from krypton. It was padlocked at each end. The outboard was secured with a motor lock and the petrol tank with a 2 cm steel cable. They retired for the night at 23:30 and at 06:00 the next morning they discovered the dinghy was missing, the locking cable had been cut. At that same time they saw the police motor past with the dinghy in tow. They signalled the police, who came over, and after establishing ownership the police took a report. The police indicated the dinghy had been found on the beach with some inflatable devices that had apparently been used to get to the yacht. There was minor damage beyond the cut cable to the starter cord/switch and the fuel line.
