Interesting Day For OSPR

486817_422018701225791_440484481_n_246_274_c1Our California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) members who are oil spill prevention pros with the Office of Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) were at the scene of a stolen, 82-foot, $2.7 million dollar yacht that ran aground near Pacifica, yesterday.

The vessel,  "Darling," was reportedly stolen from Sausalito during the night and became stranded in the surf at Pacifica.  While no oil sheen was present, OSPR responded as a precaution.

Police initially arrested three people, two men and a woman, but it wasn't hook, line and sinker.   For a period of time, the three refused to come out of the vessel.  Eventually they surrendered and were brought to shore. 

"Our oil spill prevention professionals sure have a lot of stories to tell.  They encounter all kinds of scenarios," said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona.  "Fortunately they kept a keen eye on the water and the yacht and were there should any oil have spilled  into the ocean. "
