Location Detail: St Lucia Marigot
EVENT: Theft
Stolen Items: Thieves stole 600 € from two wallets in the cabins.

DETAILS: Boat was locked, only one hatch in the front could not be securely locked. At least two people boarded the boat swimming while crew was ashore for dinner. They got in through the unlocked hatch, closed it again, looked in all cabins and nearly all closets, took the towels from crew to dry themselves, took 600 € from two wallets, opened other hatches to flee. Did not take cameras and i-pad. Probably were disturbed by crew coming back.

After 600 € had already been stolen from the boat on the evening before while crew was ashore, the crew tried to lock as many hatches and doors as possible. Only two hatches on the deck of two cabins had been left open, but secured with some ropes. At 3.00 am in the morning, footsteps were heard on the deck and some of the crew woke up and started to check the boat. One saw a man just stepping down from the catamaran into a little wooden boat with rows and started to shout loudly at him. Soon the whole crew was awoke and two crew members went after the man and stopped him. Man said he was just a fisherman and jumped off the boat to flee in the jungle at the shore. Two crew members took the "machete" from his boat and tried to take his boat away from him to show it to the police, but he went back in the water and grabbed his boat. He also tried to grab the "machete", but it was already gone.
