LOCATION: Cayman Islands (UK) – Grand Cayman – Lobster Pot Area
EVENT: Attempted Theft
STOLEN ITEMS: None, not successful
DETAILS: The captain of a yacht on a mooring was awakened by noise at 0400HRS, and investigated. Two men were outside his cockpit door and when challenged claimed to be “just fishing because they thought the boat was empty”. They did not have any fishing gear, only backpacks. The men left immediately without incident in a small rowboat.
A report was made the next day to the Coast Guard and Port Captain, who indicated they had suspects and that there had been boardings/theft on several local dive boats the same night.
