Seattle ferry theft raises security questions

Officials are reviewing security for a commercial U.S.-to-Canada ferry service after they say a sex offender managed to steal one of the boats from the Seattle waterfront in a theft that raised the risk of collisions with barge traffic in a busy port area.

Samuel Kenneth McDonough was arrested by a SWAT team that boarded a Victoria Clipper on Sunday, seven hours after the ship motored away and drifted in Elliott Bay.

McDonough, 33, was jailed for investigation of burglary, reckless endangerment, malicious mischief, and an outstanding warrant for failure to register as a sex offender.
