Guest helps stop boat theft at local hotel


A hotel guest helped foil the theft of boats at Carlisle Bay, the General Manager Brian Murphy has confirmed.

According to reports, the robber left St. John’s on a stolen boat and attempted to steal a boat at Carlisle Bay.

Murphy says the incident last Thursday night saw the thief attempting to steal a boat used in water sports activities.

While attempting to escape, the thief crashed into a catamaran which is owned by a hotel guest.

The guest alerted the police but the thief escaped empty handed. He reportedly had difficulty making off with the vessel which was still anchored. No one was injured.

Police are investigating the matter.

    • With you, I totally agree. So.. why did the Coast Guard apprehend him? If he had weed or coke, dem wudda dun kech e lang time.

    • That’s why the police have weapons. The law is for the lawless. All them damn thieves mus pay. Our friends in the Islamic states would put their thiefing hand off for starters

  1. the General Manager was not there it was the manager on duty the boat owner and security handling the whole thing.
