|It wasn't these guys. |
Oh, if only someone filmed this, it'd be the next YouTube sensation.
For now, we'll leave you with the written play-by-play: On Wednesday evening, two men from Riverside walked onto a 37-foot Egg Harbor boat in Surf City's Sea Harbour community, drank all the beer in the boat's fridge, untied the boat from the dock, and started the engine. Though--doh!--they couldn't figure out how to get the boat into reverse.
Meanwhile, a friend of the boat owner, who was on vacation, called the cops, who came and busted the indiscreet boat snatchers.
The Huntington Beach Police Department arrested 26-year-old Rory Lee Balcom and 20-year-old Carlos Vargas for burglary and possession of a stolen boat. They were booked at the city jail.
