Country Name: Martinique
Location Detail: St. Anne
Stolen Items: RIB – AB 24 + YAMAHA 225hp
SECURED: Not Locked
DETAILS: Operators of a marine trade business docked their boat (24FT RIB – 225HP outboard) at La Dunette dock at about 20:30 HRS, and patronized the business there. They did not lock the boat, left the keys in the ignition and the courtesy lights ON. An hour later they discovered it had been stolen, and made a report to the coast guard. A search was made in the surrounding area and the boat was not located. The next morning, a police report was made. That same morning the boat was seen by others, nearby and aground in a place that had been well searched the previous night. The CG and owner retrieved it, found some damage to the hull, the courtesy lights turned off and the key missing.
