While owners were ashore during the afternoon, their anchored yacht was boarded and thieves used a winch handle found in the cockpit to defeat the companionway lock. After gaining access they then ransacked the interior and stole several small easily concealed items – iPhone, iPod, cash, credit card, and a gold necklace.
Several calls were placed to 911 and received no followup that day.
Calls to the harbor authority on VHF16 were not answered.
