Country Name: Martinique
Location Detail: Le Marin Marina
Stolen Items: None
DETAILS: At 2 AM the crew of a catamaran in the old section of the Le Marin Marina was awakened by footsteps on deck. From behind the catamaran’s locked cockpit doors they observed a male boarder who stood in the cockpit, then sat and stared back at the astonished and concerned crew. A few minutes later he left. Later that morning a man was found asleep on an unoccupied boat on the adjacent dock, and when awakened and questioned he indicated he was waiting for the owner (who was not present) and then he departed. After a report was made to the Marina, a review of their video surveillance was made but the man’s face was obscured and not conclusive, but he appeared similar to the boarder, and the photos/description have been provided to the police and the marina guard. The crew felt both the police and marina were responsive and the police advised calling the local emergency number in cases of future boardings.
