“Pirates” Steal Shrimp Boat, Ground It On Myrtle Beach Sandbar



Shrimp Boat

A group of “modern day”, would be pirates stole a shrimp boat Saturday from Murrells Inlet.

The boat has been found on a sandbar near Myrtle Beach, according to Jason Lesley with the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.

 The “Lila Lee,” was taken Saturday from the Marlin Quay Marina around midnight, according to Georgetown County deputies.

The boat is a refurbished 1980 40-foot long Gillikin Trawler valued at approximately $75,000.

The “pirates” have yet to be captured and authorities are still investigating.
