Searsport, ME, Teen Accused of Lobster Boat Theft

Associated Press: Police say a Searsport, Maine, teenager accused of stealing a $250,000 racing lobster boat during the summer simply needed a ride across Penobscot Bay.

The 36’ boat went missing August 18 and was found undamaged the next day in Sedgwick.

Following a 2-month investigation by multiple law enforcement agencies, police arrested 18-year-old Dakota Obrien late last month on a charge of felony theft. Authorities say fingerprints helped lead to Obrien.
