A man pedaled away from a dock in Prince George’s County, Maryland, in a stolen dragon-shaped pedal boat, police said.
It happened Monday around 7:15 p.m., police responded to a call about a man who stole a pedal boat at National Harbor.
Police said that 32-year-old Kevin Quijano-QuiJada, of Forest Heights, swam to a docked pedal boat and took it without paying. He then pedaled it further into the Potomac River, where he was apprehended by harbor unit officers, a news release said.
A police spokesman told The Washington Post that the suspect was “a little bit inebriated.”
