DATE: 2018-12-16 17:00
Country Name: St. Lucia
Location Detail: Marigot
EVENT: Theft
HAND: 1
Stolen Items: Cash, credit cards, 3 iPhones, iPad, handbag and 6 bottles of rum
SECURED: Not Locked
DETAILS: A monohull anchored in an area north of the Marigot Bay harbor and south of Castries. No other yachts were nearby.

All 3 onboard went for a snorkel nearby (about 30 meters away) and did not lock the boat. A local transport boat was waiting to unload and anchored about 100 meters away and witnessed the boarding and theft that occurred during the 30-40 minutes the crew was snorkeling. One swimmer kept a watch while 3 others boarded and ransacked the yacht, stealing cash, credit cards, iPhones, iPad, a purse and rum, leaving behind wet footprints that the victims discovered on their return.

The witnesses on the nearby boat assisted the victims in making contact with the police. The victims made their first report at the local police station and were told to collect it at a different station. Two days later at the second station, the report seemed to have been “misplaced” when they went to collect it, and they were told to return the next day. They returned, but the report could still not be found, so a new report was completed.

The victims indicate that the police seemed disinterested, and they failed to collect any meaningful information (a good description of one of the thieves was available, but not recorded). The subsequent investigation onboard included only photos of areas irrelevant to the theft, and no forensic/fingerprint analysis.

Country Name: SVG
Location Detail: St. Vincent Wallilabou
EVENT: Theft
HAND: 1
Stolen Items: $80 ECD
SECURED: N/A
DETAILS: In the afternoon the owners of a private yacht approached the anchorage and engaged a boat boy for tying up to a mooring, agreeing a price of $20 ECD for this service. The owners had only a $100 ECD bill, and the boat boy agreed to return promptly with their change. He did not return. Later, the crew went ashore and paid separately for the mooring, indicating to the business the name of the boat boy, but they proved unhelpful. The yacht departed the next day.
