That’s one way to do it.
A Bothell man who noticed his stolen canoe atop a stranger’s car managed to stop the driver at the scene while he waited for authorities to arrive, according to Bothell Police.
The man, who owns a paddleboard and canoe rental company called ‘What’s Sup’, realized one of his canoes had been taken early Wednesday. The man reportedly saw a suspicious vehicle parked by a nearby storage container when he searched the area; however, the car was gone when he returned.
Later that morning, the man spotted the same vehicle — with his stolen canoe strapped to the car roof — on State Route 522. According to the Bothell Reporter, After calling the police, he boxed the driver of the other car in the vehicle and waited for the authorities.
