With Memorial Day gone, people are heading to the beach. Some of those people will want to use recreational watercraft and thieves know that they can be lucrative, if stolen and resold. There are two thefts involving watercraft that police in Bensalem are hoping to crack. They are happening along the area On Bristol Pike from I-95 to the Bristol Township line.
The first theft happened May 5, 2021, when two people tried to get into a locked fence area of Davidsons Auto Shop- on Bristol Pike. They wanted two jet skis and a trailer. The could not get them so they left, returned, according to staff at the shop and returned, and damaged the fence and lock in an effort to get the watercraft. They did get them.
May 30, 2021, saw another theft of watercraft, from the Plumbarama shop located on the 3400 block of Bristol Pike. Two pick up trucks pulled in hooked onto the items, which were : 3 Seadoo RXTX watercraft. The Seadoo’s were on 2 Loadrite trailers that were stored in the rear lot of the business. The 3 watercraft are: 2016 Yellow Seadoo RXTX 300 NJ Reg NJ4097HH; 2016 Orange Seadoo RXTX 300 NJ Reg NJ4096HH; 2017 Orange Seadoo RXTX 300 NJ Reg NJ0853HK
They escaped south on I-95 from Street Road. Someone knows who the pick up trucks belong to, or maybe you have seen someone that has these watercraft. If so, you are asked to contact Bensalem Police at (215) 633-3719. You can see a video below.
