Tri City Man Steals & Wrecks Boat, Saved by Coast Guard but Escapes
Kennewick police are looking for a man after he stole a huge boat from Clover Island Marina and crashed it on an Island. The owner, David Boderick, had gotten a call from the Coast Guard that his boat had been stolen last Friday morning according to news reports. The thieves ended up beaching the boat on a pile of rocks and then trying to get away on a jet ski that was on the boat swim deck. Before he left the boat on the jet ski, the suspect called the Coast Guard which sent a helicopter looking for the boat and found the suspect hours later.
The suspect was taken to Lourdes Urgent Care where he refused treatment and fled on foot. He is described as a white male, thin and balding hair and is about six feet tall. The owner of the boat has to repair thousands of dollars in mechanical damage and hopes the marina will increase security after this incident.
