Lost at Land - Police Search for Owner of Illegally Dumped Boat

By: Rich Hosford

The Burlington Police Department is looking for information on an abandoned boat left near the power lines on Wilmington Road. 


“Hey Captain Ahab!” police tweeted on Monday. “Abandon ship doesn't mean illegally dump your boat by the power lines!”



Police say the boat, a Galaxy Bowrider, was dumped on Sunday, March 26 at around 8:45 a.m. The suspect is a white male with glasses driving a maroon Dodge pick-up truck. Police ask that if anyone recognizes the boat or notices an empty boat trailer parked in a neighbor’s property, to call them at (781) 272-1212 to “discuss their poor navigational choices.” 


Police also noted that the Hull Identification Number (HIN) looks to have been scratched out in an attempt to hide the boat’s identity. 


There is also a sticker on the boat that someone might recognize. Police also took the moment for some ribbing of the previous owner.
