At approximately 6 a.m., police received a call of a sailing vessel with no one aboard floating in the Halifax Harbour. This information was past onto the Coast Guard for response. Later in the morning, the owner of the tall ship Silva reported to police that someone had intentionally set the ship free from its mooring. Video footage in the area showed a small group of people going onto the ship at approximately 1:30 a.m. It appears the group raised one of the sails, untied all of the securing ropes except for one and then left the ship. The ship broke free and floated out into the Harbour at approximately 5 a.m. The ship has since been retrieved and is once again tied up at the dock. At this time, no descriptions of the suspects are available but the incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact officers at 490-5016 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca.
