Weapons stolen from Australian navy patrol boat


The Australian Department of Defence said the infiltrator “overwhelmed a duty member on-board a patrol boat” which was moored at HMAS Coonawarra, a naval base in the northern city of Darwin in a night raid.

“The intruder overpowered the duty member, accessed the vessel’s armoury and removed a number of weapons,” it said in a statement.

“The person then departed the vessel with the weapons.”

Police said two pump-action shotguns and 12 pistols were stolen by the intruder, who was wearing a balaclava and military-style clothing and who they said “appeared to have good knowledge of the vessel”.

Oops.

This is, almost literally, right out of an episode of Sea Patrol.

    Police said two pump-action shotguns and 12 pistols were stolen by the intruder, who was wearing nothing but lipstick and a smile and who they said “appeared to have a working knowledge of seamen”.
