GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

A Gulfport man accused of possessing a stolen boat and transporting that boat across state lines has been arrested by FBI agents.

A federal grand jury has indicted Justin Griffing on charges of receiving a stolen vehicle in interstate commerce and interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle.

Griffing, 33, was arrested Tuesday morning, but the case goes back to July of 2014 when FBI agents seized the 34-foot Fountain boat with three 300-horsepower engines from Griffing’s home.

According to a news release from the FBI, the hull number on the boat was changed after it was stolen from Belle Chase, LA in June 2012.

If you have any information that could help investigators with this case, please contact the FBI’s office in Gulfport at 228-864-6131.
