UPDATE: That stolen dinghy has been recovered
UPDATE MONDAY MAY 5: Theft victim John White told The B-Town Blog Monday night that he found his missing dinghy.
“It was tied up in front of a nearby house with a large bell mounted on two pedestals – I rang the bell but no one came,” John said. “I unloaded the giant driftwood and recovered my boat. Thanks!”
Burien resident John White says his dinghy boat was stolen Sunday night around 7:40 p.m. from the beach in front of his house Forest Ledge, located just north of Eagle Landing Park.
White says the culprit appeared to be a white woman in her 50s, who loaded the boat with driftwood, hopped in, and was last seen rowing it southbound.
The fiberglass dinghy has no engine – just oars – is colored blue and has a Washington state marine license on it.
The suspect may be rowing against the current.
“I’m offering a $500 reward for the safe return of my boat,” White told The B-Town Blog.
