REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) - Rehoboth Beach Police say some of the seven lifeguard stands stolen from the beach have been found, including some spotted floating miles offshore.

Police say four of the more than 500-pound stands that disappeared last week had been recovered by Monday.

A fishing boat spotted two stands floating about two miles offshore near Fenwick Island on Saturday and brought one back to shore. Officials say the U.S. Coast Guard brought in two more. On Monday, the fourth was found washed up on a private beach in Bethany Beach.

With three still missing, police are warning of “a serious marine hazard” for watercraft that could hit stands still bobbing in the ocean.

Police say they are investigating the theft.
