THUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay Police Service Officers took a report of a theft of a boat around 4:00 p.m. on August 4, 2018, from the Marina at Prince Arthurs landing.

Marina Security had been alerted by a citizen that a young male had hopped the fence and left in a 27′ long Ranger tugboat. The Coast Guard was called out along with Thunder Bay Fire Rescue to assist in locating the boat. It was eventually found on a sandbar located in the Mission Marsh area. The suspect was observed running away from this location.

The owner of the boat was contacted and arrangements were made to have the boat towed back to the Marina to assess the damage from the vessel being broken into and being run into the sandbar.

The suspect was described as a teen Caucasian male who is approximately 5’9″ tall with dark messy hair. He was wearing jeans and a blue t-shirt. Anyone with information about this incident or the identity of this male is asked to contact the police at 684-1200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.p3tips.com.
