A sailboat skipper who was arrested by the Coast Guard outside the Golden Gate on Sunday was given an Aug. 7 date in federal court in San Francisco for arraignment on three criminal charges.
Two Pacifica police investigators testified in a South San Francisco courtroom Thursday morning in the preliminary hearing for a Wyoming man charged with stealing a yacht worth as much as $4 million from the Sausalito Yacht Harbor in March.
A judge has assigned two doctors to determine if a Wyoming man charged with stealing a luxury yacht in Sausalito and running it aground in Pacifica is mentally fit for trial.
Two of three people arrested on suspicion of stealing a yacht from Sausalito were set to be released from jail just days after the vessel ran aground in Pacifica.
The U.S. Coast Guard was monitoring a stolen 82-foot sailboat that ran aground in the surf in Pacifica Monday morning, an agency spokeswoman said.
