Police appealing for information after theft of outboard engine at Wroxham

Police are urging boaters to make sure they are taking necessary security measures to prevent thefts after an outboard engine was stolen in Wroxham.

The incident happened between 4pm on Friday, July 6 and 7.30am on Monday at Riverside Moorings on the River Bure.

An unknown number of suspects stole a Yamaha 35hp outboard engine and a five gallon fuel tank from a work boat.

Police have advised boaters using outboard engines to completely remove them if vessels are being left for long periods of time.
