St. Joseph Township police say five people were arrested for stealing items from multiple boats at Pier 1000 Marina.

Officers were called to the marina, located at 1000 Riverview Drive, around 2 a.m. Tuesday after a report that suspicious individuals were going from boat to boat.

After a chase through the marina, two suspects were arrested at the scene. Three other suspects received cuts when they tried to escape through a hole that was cut in the fence. They were treated at Lakeland Hospital and then booked into Berrien County Jail.

Officers found stolen items near the hole in the fence. And a handgun and a small amount of narcotics were found on one of the suspects, according to police.

Police have yet to release the identities of the suspects. The investigation is ongoing.
