PACIFICA, Calif. (AP) - Crews have removed an 82-foot yacht from a Northern California beach after authorities say three people stole it, stocked it with pizza and beer, then ran it aground.
KGO-TV reports the luxury vessel "Darlin" was pulled from the sand early Tuesday at Pacifica State Beach, where it was stuck for nearly a day.
Pacifica police arrested 63-year-old Leslie Gardner, 54-year-old Dario Mira and 56-year-old Lisa Modawell on suspicion of grand theft and conspiracy. The three were being held in the San Mateo County jail.
Rescue crews responded to reports of the boat being run aground early Monday, but officials eventually learned the boat had been stolen from Sausalito after the owner recognized it on television.
The boat suffered damage to its rudder and keel, and is being repaired.
