CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) - A Clear Lake officer has arrested a 19-year-old suspect after a boat docked at City Beach on northern Iowa’s Clear Lake was stolen.

The theft occurred around 8 p.m. Saturday. Mason City television station KIMT says (https://bit.ly/1m8iISt ) a witness told officers that he’d be willing to chase after the stolen boat, so one of the officers hopped aboard and they took off.

Clear Lake police Lt. Paul Chizek says the two found the boat near the other side of the lake and got the suspected thief to stop.

The theft suspect’s case isn’t listed on Iowa online court records.
