Norfolk Constabulary: Warning after boat engines stolen

21 January 2014

Thieves targeted boats at moorings in Loddon last week, stealing three outboard engines.

The incidents happened between Thursday and Friday afternoon (16/17 January) Pyes Mill moorings, off Mill Road.

Four boats were broken into with three engines stolen along with marine equipment and fuel cans.

Investigating officer, PC Jon Parry from Broads Beat, said: “Offender(s) would have needed a large car or van to remove the items so I would be keen to hear from anyone who may have seen vehicles in suspicious circumstances in the area.

“The only boat targeted which didn t have its engine taken was one which had a police security cover in place.

I would encourage boat owners to take extra security measures as vessels are often targeted at this time of year.

Police boat covers

Norfolk Police has outboard engine security covers available for purchase which come in three sizes; small (up to 6ph) 27.75, medium (up to 15ph) 31.75, large (up to 40ph) 35.75.

For more information or to order a cover please call the Broads Beat team on 101.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incidents or noticed anything suspicious in the area.
