Weekend Courier - - News -

ROCK­ING­HAM Vol­un­teer Sea Rescue Group’s main rescue ves­sel the Jaimee Lee was bro­ken into on Sun­day night.

All of the elec­tronic nav­i­ga­tion equip­ment was stolen along with crew mem­bers’ per­sonal flota­tion de­vices (PFDs) and the flare kit.

The group had just spent money en­sur­ing the boat was equipped to keep the com­mu­nity safe on the wa­ter.

A spokesman said two Fu­runo Navnet screens, six blue or black coloured PFDs (with RVSRG la­bels) and a yel­low flare con­tainer (with flares) were stolen.

“These peo­ple have stolen from a vol­un­teer not-for-profit-or­gan­i­sa­tion that re­lies heav­ily on the gen­eros­ity of our spon­sors, sup­port­ers and the pub­lic,” he said.

“We are ex­tremely dis­ap­pointed that Jaimee Lee now has to be taken back out of ser­vice.

“We will con­tinue our 24/7 on-wa­ter op­er­a­tions with the ves­sel Cape Peron.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
