Truck Thief Jumps Into Bay, Found Clinging to Pirate Ship
24-year-old Christopher Breaker lead police in Eureka, California on a crazy chase after ditching a stolen truck and vandalizing a Department of Fish & Wildlife boat.
Breaker then dove into bay along the Eureka Waterfront and climbed aboard a historical ship that was docked. “Then he swam across the bay and climbed up onto a pirate ship,” Public Information Officer Brittany Powell said. “The captain helped pull him up out of the water and a bunch of people flagged [officers] down saying there was someone on the ship.”
“When officers arrived he was hanging onto the back of the ship, very cold,” Powell said. “Paramedics got some blankets around him, and around that time they figured out he was the suspect who stole the truck.”
Breaker was arrested in connection to the pursuit and charged with vehicle theft, vandalism, and resisting arrest.
