Thugs Vandalized the Property of Trump Cabinet Member Betsy DeVos 

Police in Huron, Ohio, are still trying to find out who unmoored a yacht belonging to the secretary and her family

This is odd — and the perpetrators haven’t yet been identified.

But a boat that is owned by the family of U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos was vandalized this past weekend — while it was moored at a dock in Huron, Ohio.

That’s according to the Huron Police Department and as reported by The Toledo Blade.

The boat, called The Seaquest, was moored at the Huron Boat Basin on Main Street in Huron, a police report said.

The yacht is worth a reported $40 million, according to several outlets.

Police are examining surveillance footage to see if they can identify who may have taken part in this act of vandalism, as NBC News and other outlets have reported.

The captain of the 163-foot yacht apparently called police at about 6 a.m. on Sunday to say that he and the crew “realized at sunrise that someone had untied Seaquest from the dock, setting it adrift,” the Blade noted.

The crew eventually regained control of the boat — but first it “struck the dock, causing an estimated $5,000 to $10,000 in damage from large scratches and scrapes, according to the police report,” said the Blade.

The craft was set adrift sometime in the overnight or wee hours of Sunday, July 22, the police report said.
