PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP) - A sheriff in northern Ohio has suspended three deputies who he says took the department’s boats across Lake Erie to marinas in Canada.

The sheriff in Ottawa County, just east of Toledo, says the deputies made a bad decision taking the boats across the border on a Saturday last month.

The Sandusky Register (https://bit.ly/1J2fyXS ) reports one of the deputies said they went to marinas at Pelee Island and Leamington, Ontario, to familiarize themselves with the areas in case they ever get called in to assist Canadian authorities.

The unpaid suspensions ranged from three days to 20 days.

A fourth deputy who works with the Ottawa County drug task force also was disciplined for being a part of the trip.

The men also had to repay the fuel costs.
