Lifeboat Group Burglarized

Tuesday, February 08, 2000
A British lifeboat crew was left high and dry after thieves stole the keys to their boathouse, pocketed their tea and biscuit fund and made off with the crew's whisky. The theft at the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) station at Brighton Marina in southeast England left the rescue crew without a way into their boathouse for an hour until a spare key was found. Luckily, there were no emergency calls while they waited. The raid was not the Brighton station's first. In 1977, the group's lifeboat itself was taken and later found bobbing off the British coast.
