Stolen boat recovered following overnight raid
PUBLISHED: 16:58 22 June 2020
Witnesses are being sought after a boat was stolen from popular moorings.
The boat, a Hardy Seawings 194, with Polly Peachum T264 on the side, was stolen overnight on Thursday, June 18 from Langley Dyke, but has since been recovered.
Police are seeking information and are urging boat owners to check their CCTV along the River Yare after the boat – which had a new grey canopy and a rare blue nylon rope marine bumper – was stolen.
It has since been recovered in Beccles by an off duty Broads Authority ranger.
However, officers are still keen to trace any witnesses who may have seen the boat being lifted or towed out of any slipways or boatyards along the River Yare and are asking boatyards to check CCTV.
PC Paul Bassham, from Norfolk police’s Broads Beat, said: “Please make sure you have photographs of your boats and marine equipment and they are security marked so it makes it easier to identify your property if it is stolen and sold on.”
Anyone with information or CCTV footage should contact PC Amy Barrell on 101 quoting crime reference 36/40176/20.
