Canal boat getaway thieves left 'high and dry'

Featured Posts

A boat was used as a getaway vehicle by suspected robbers after a building site was targeted in Coventry, police said.

 
West Midlands Police

The Coventry and Solihull response team tweeted that officers had "barged onto the scene" and the robbers' plans had been left "high and dry".

One person was detained, they said, "but the Insp wouldn't let us make him walk the plank!"

If the small plastic cruiser was the "Swag wagon"they didn't /couldn't have stolen much either size or weight wise as if weight was the prize it would have had much less dry side

There is / was an inspection type launch for sale at Braunston marina a couple of weeks ago, it had rear view mirrors at the front. It had dual steering positions however.

The boat is sat moored just by the old navigation pub at Bedworth, seen it yesterday, a good rainfall and its going to be on the bottom as no covers are over the cabin.

 

Hopefully the one that got away will return and take the piece of crap elsewhere, if its left for CRT to sort it then it may be there a while.
