Several boat owners who dock in Pictou got a rude awakening on Thursday morning after seven boats were broken into.

“I got a telephone call this morning at 8 a.m. from one of the boaters telling me they were all broken into,” said Bob Campbell

He said the damage was minor.

“The biggest damage was breaking the locks off the doors,” he said. “They stole change, pop and chips and stuff.”

Danny McInnis also got a call.

“They broke the lock off and threw it away,” he said. “They went through some stuff.”

He said this is the first time he’s had his boat broken into, although there have been several incidents in the past where boats have been untied during the night.

RCMP officers were on scene to look for clues Thursday morning including fingerprints.
