Video Captures Naked Man Stealing Flag From Delray Beach Yacht

What to Know

  • Video showed the man having a large tattoo on his left arm and another one on his left thigh.

Police in one Palm Beach County city are looking for a man who stole an American flag from a yacht – all while doing so in the nude.

NBC affiliate WPTV-TV reported the incident took place around 2:30 a.m. on October 11th at a marina in Delray Beach located just off Atlantic Avenue. In the video, the man hops onto the Lady Atlantic and Lady Delray yachts before leaving with the flag and a wooden pole.

The unidentified crook later jumped into the water and swam away.

"Certainly not shy," Joe Reardon, the owner and captain of Delray Yacht Cruises, told the station. "I look at it as the owner, as the kid could have fallen off the third deck, whacked his head on the second deck, and now I have to deal with a dead person.”

Video showed the man having a large tattoo on his left arm and another one on his left thigh. Anyone with information is asked to call Delray Beach Police or Delray Yacht Cruises, which says they are offering a reward in the case.
