VINCENNES, Ind. (WEHT) – Indiana Conservation Officers said a Vincennes man stole a boat from the Wabash River on Saturday, August 17.

Chad W. Taylor, 39, took the boat without the permission of the owner, officers said.

Later that morning, a couple of fishermen said they were flagged down by Taylor and were suspicious of his demeanor and lack of knowledge of the boat.

The boat in question was found at a set of river cabins on the White River.

Officers said Taylor admitted to taking the boat and he was arrested.

The boat was returned to its owner.
