FT. MYERS, Florida (WABC) -- Boat thieves in Florida took the Coast Guard on a chase for hundreds of miles. The ordeal began Christmas morning near Ft. Myers Florida, and ended across the gulf near Mexico.
It all started as investigators were looking into a possible organized boat theft ring. When they tried to go after suspects in a high-speed vessel, they took off.
The Coast Guard kept a close eye in the air, and on the water until they were able to arrest three suspects.
No one was hurt.
