Vandals jumped two marina fences and went down the line vandalizing, burglarizing and pilfering from boats.

Venetian Marina and Sandusky Harbor Marina were the spots hit, but how hard remains a mystery.

Jody Allen, a boat owner who kept her boat at Venetian Marina, said $800 to $900 worth of merchandise including a TV, a DVD player, prescription medication and liquor was missing from her boat when dock neighbors called her.

"I probably still wouldn't know what happened if the other owners hadn't called us," the Medina resident said.

Loss estimates in dollars weren't immediately available, but Allen said she heard that at least 25 boats were broken into at the Venetian Marina alone.

Read all about this and the police response to the break-ins by picking up a copy of Tuesday's Sandusky Register newspaper.

Thank You for your smart comment .Let me try to give you a  update

1. Boaters on the dock  had told us that medication was missing on there boats not MINE!!!  Opps and I kinda forgot that medications could range anywhere from asprins to  cough syrup. I'm sure glad there wasn't any bath salts or you would of had a hay day with that.

2.  I'm not a nun and I'm over 21 and I'm not attending AAA so  BOOZE as you call it is allowed in the USA.

3. And all I can say about your comment on the TV , Dvd's and player is  WOW!!! Get your head out of the gutter. But I sure wouldn't mind checking out your your wife,x wife or girlfriends dresser I bet there's some skeltons in that closest.

4. I hope noone ever enters your space and take anything that belongs to you, Things that  you worked and paided for.                                              Have a great day!
