Garner Teen Goes on Boat Joy Ride

The Clear Lake Police Department was called to the scene of a theft of a boat at Clear Lake on Monday. Joshua Engstler is alleged to have gotten into a docked boat, released the moorings, and proceeded to drive off with it to the other side of the lake.

Police got assistance from another boater who took an officer aboard and chased the boat back to the other shore. There police were able to find the stolen craft, pull it over, and arrest the teenager.

Police have dealt with issues similar to this in the past, but nothing to the extent of theft of a boat. Clear Lake Police have taken Engstler into custody and he is awaiting arraignment.
