Four Hamilton youths are accused of breaking into boats at Hamilton’s Bayfront Marina.
Police were called after the group entered the gated area on Guise Street East at about a quarter after eleven on Tuesday night.
Before officers arrived, they had entered a number of vessels that were moored in the harbor, stealing property ranging from alcohol to electronics and flare guns.
One suspect was arrested while trying to climb the fences. The others were found hiding in the boats.
All are 16 or 17 years old and they are charged with break and enter and theft under five thousand dollars.
