UPDATE:

Surveillance footage taken around 3 a.m. Thursday at 150 N. Fifth St. showed three men stealing the jet ski, which they took off a truck and loaded into their own newer model white Ford Ranger.

Someone called the jet ski's owner Friday saying it would be left on the side of the road near San Lucas Road and Highway 101 in southern Monterey County, according to a press release from the Grover Beach Police Department. The victim then called Grover Beach police, who made arrangements with the Monterey County Sheriff's Department to recover the $10,000 orange and blue 2012 Ski Clinic Bob Gen3 jet ski.

After the jet ski was recovered, the victim determined several engine parts were missing from it.

The Grover Beach Police Department is continuing the investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Reggie Bio or Detective Jerry Cornell of the Grover Beach Police Department at (805) 473-4511 or CrimeStoppers at (805) 543-STOP (543-7867).
