Knox County Man Arrested For Allegedly Stealing Boat

KNOX COUNTY, Ind – Indiana Conservation Officers arrested a Vincennes man for allegedly stealing a boat.

Officers say that they received a tip that a couple of fishermen said they were flagged down by a man who needed gas for his boat but that they became suspicious because of the way he was acting and his lack of knowledge of the boat.

A boat registration was provided and after talking to the boat owner it was determined the operator of the boat did not have permission to use the boat.

Officers say that 39-year-old Chad W. Taylor, of Vincennes, took a boat from the Wabash River early Saturday (8/17/19) morning.

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

Taylor admitted to taking the boat and was booked into the Knox County Jail.  The boat was returned to its owner.
