Two teenagers remain jailed under $103,500 bond each, accused of boat thefts and multiple break-ins at the Mount Dora Marina in Florida, police said.

Police said the 18-year-olds are accused of stealing a 19-foot Larson bowrider from the marina and abandoning it about two miles away. A second boat, a Spirit 150 runabout, was found adrift at the marina, and a third boat, a Hurricane, was found with engine damage because a hidden kill switch prevented it from being started.
