Police were questioning two men who fled police in a 22-foot luxury speed boat on Lake Michigan after officers were investigating a string of boat burglaries in Monroe Harbor early Monday.(snip)
As of 4 a.m. the two men were being interviewed by police, according to police Marine Unit Sgt. Jim Vanvranken.
The incident began about 3 a.m. when police were staking out Monroe Harbor on a burglary mission after a recent string of burglaries to boats in the harbor and officers had noticed a speedboat that came into the harbor and turned its lights off, according to the sergeant.
“Our guys were watching them. As our boats approached they fired up this fast boat with no lights on and took off running. They hit the lake,’’ the sergeant said. The sergeant said officers in their newest, fastest boat gave chase north and trapped them near Navy Pier.
