Five joy-riding youths arrested in car/yacht escapade

Timothy Berry, Timothy Merrifield and Jacob Ross, all 18, were booked into the Whatcom County Jail last week following their arrest after a joyride that began with a stolen car on Third Street and ended up on the beach at Point Roberts in a stolen yacht.

Berry was released but the other two remain in custody. Two other boys, age 17 and 16, were booked into juvenile detention and the younger one has been released. Blaine police said that in addition to these arrests, the prosecutor is considering charges against a 15-year-old juvenile female.
