Default Pirates ! Really!

Last night around 11:30 I hear over the scanner of something very unusual.....A pirate attack! The so called "pirates" were in a 20' center console flying of all things a pirate flag! They boarded a moored sailboat and attempted to rob the boat owner at gun point (they claimed they had a gun) With an extensive Home Security camera network in place around the harbor it was easy for the CG to nab them!

Guess where the "Pirate" boat is? Yup, tied up across the float from my boat...minus the "skull & cross bones"!

I guess their plea is Not Guilty, by reason of STUPIDITY.
