Thefts From Grasonville Boat Dealership



Grasonville boats2On December 29, 2015 deputies responded to Chesapeake Whalertowne for a reported burglary and theft of electronics from numerous (25-30) boats stored there in a locked fenced area.
Investigation showed that suspect(s) had removed the Power Propulsion Control Modules from numerous Mercury Outboard engines along with other electronic equipment such as navigation units, stereos and GPS systems.

A single PCM is valued at nearly $6000 and is what helps make the engine run faster. It’s possible that several suspects were involved who would have had experience working on this type of engine and would have been on location for an extended time period.

The boats were being stored for the winter and do not belong to the business. The stolen items, damage and repair costs have been estimated between $300,000 to $400,000.

The Sheriff’s Office is urging anyone who may have witnessed something suspicious in the area during the holiday to contact the Sheriff’s Criminal Investigation Unit at (410) 758-0770. Tips can also be sent by email to or by private message to the Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
