DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say recently released statistics show boat thefts in Ohio continued to decline last year.
Data compiled by the nonprofit National Insurance Crime Bureau shows that about 95 boats and other watercraft were reported stolen in Ohio in 2012. That's a drop of 17 from 2011 and 36 percent from 2010.
State officials told the Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/19azxDG) the crime remains costly to victims because many don't have insurance. Ohio thieves seem to prefer jet skis, with 13 stolen in 2012, followed by utility boats, run-abouts and cruisers.
About 40 percent of stolen watercraft were recovered last year. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says people should keep a log with photographs and serial numbers of their equipment as this information could be helpful should something be stolen.
