Stolen Boat Archive - 2008

December 11, 2008 - 2005 Bayline 285 stolen for second time
On December 11, 2008 Detective Morrison of the Port Moody PD investigated the theft of a Bayliner 285 from Reed Point Marina (Port Moody BC). The HIN provided by the owner was not appear legitimate, and was determined to belong to a Bayliner 285 already reported stolen from Crescent Beach Marina, Surrey BC, in August 2007. It appears that after being stolen from Crescent Beach, a "C" in the HIN was altered to an "O" and a new vessel license obtained. There may be ghost imaging of the name Coconut Grove and the legitimate vessel license 15K8342. It is believed that the vessel would have remained in the water and not trailered from the area.  We request all marina's check their temporary moorage slips and listing of any new customers for this vessel.

The vessel had been re-insured under the altered numbers. Therefore, we also request all brokers and underwriters determine if a vessel fitting this description has received a policy since early December 2008.

At approximately 0230 hrs on the morning of July 27th a deep sea freighter was departing its berth at Centerm in Burrard Inlet being aided by two tugs. A vessel described as a 25'- 30' Velocity power boat white with green trim cut between the tugs and the deep sea. The Velocity impacted the side of the deep sea several times and three of the five occupants of the vessel dove into the water, adding more concern to the pilot and crews of the deep sea and tugs. The parties in the water returned to their vessel, yelled profanities and departed the area. Prior to leaving it was learned that the vessel was headed to Reed Point Marina in Port Moody. Port Moody PD units were dispatched to Reed Point Marina. Members observed the vessel approaching the marina. As the occupants observed police, it fled.

Cst O'Donovan is requesting any information on this vessel. It is believed that the vessel owner may make an insurance claim for possible damaged sustained when he drove his vessel into the side of the deep sea.

All information will be kept confidential.
