Palm Bay Police Search For Boat Thieves: VIDEO


PALM BAY, Fla. -- Palm Bay Police detectives are seeking the identity of a group of suspects captured on video in a stolen boat and attempting to steal a second boat in the Turkey Creek area.  

During the overnight hours of Wednesday, February 1st, three white males are seen on a resident's surveillance camera as they paddled down the Turkey Creek area in a boat stolen from a dock near Anglers Drive.  The suspects stopped in front of another boat docked along the creek and attempted to steal it - but were unsuccessful.  The trio of thieves later stole another boat from a residence on Miller Drive, also in the Turkey Creek area.  That boat was later recovered in the area of Pollak Park.
