Pirate booty found?


Reported in the Stabroek News:
Fishermen from the Number 66 Fish Port Complex recovered six of the seven engines that were stolen by bandits during an attack in the Corentyne River early last month.

In the terror which lasted for two days, bandits stripped the fishermen of their Yamaha engines with leads, gasoline, a quantity of fish and groceries, a total value of $4.5M.

The men were left to drift at sea for a few days until rescue boats went in search of them.
That's Guyana, by the way.

Initial report of piracy here.
