Three incidents involve boat motors

Police in Edmonds and Lynnwood last week responded to three incidents involving boat motors.

A boat motor was reported stolen June 26 from the driveway of a home on Ninth Avenue S in Edmonds.

The following day, a caller reported that someone was trying to steal the motor from a boat parked in the driveway of a home on Pine Street, according to police records.

Lynnwood police on June 27 also received a report of a stolen boat motor from a home near Spruce Park.

Boat motor thefts aren’t common, Edmonds police Sgt. Mike Blackburn said.

“They have serial numbers, so they wouldn’t be easy to sell,” he said.
