After two men were reported to have stolen a 24-foot aluminum boat, a Coast Guard helicopter took to the air and came upon the vessel run aground on a floating dock with the outboard still engaged.

Despite the fact that they had stolen navigation equipment from the helm when they fled, deputies in Oregon apprehended the men.
