Nanaimo Mounties after boat burglars

Police in Nanaimo are investigating four break and enters and thefts from boats docked at Stones Marina in Nanaimo.

According to reports from the boats' owners and other boaters moored in neighbouring berths, police believe the craft were broken into between 11 p.m. Wednesday and 3 a.m. Thursday.

The boats were not damaged because the culprit or culprits entered through unlocked doors and hatch covers. Owners told police they believed the boats were secure because the dock gate, the only access point from land, was locked.

Items stolen included food, alcohol, dvds, cell phones and a television.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com.
