A Florida man stole a yacht worth nearly $1 million dollars, and then quickly abandoned it after crashing into some pilings, according to deputies.

Donovan Russell Jester, 28-year-old, stole the 46-foot 2019 Jeanneau Leader with a value of $899,179 from a dock in St. Petersburg, Florida, then left it after accidentally ramming into channel-marker pilings, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said. According to an arrest report, Jester evaded police for three months before being arrested last week.
