Pirates thwarted off coast of Buenaventura anchorage, Colombia

On the shored of Buenaventura anchorage, Colombia, nine individuals wearing ski masks began approaching a cotton carrying vessel. The "shore security" recognized these individuals as "obvious thieves".

The watchguard signaled a call of distress, at which point local enforcement quickly moved in. The nine men , potentially armed, were nearly apprehended.

Unfortunately, as the coast guard stationed in that area approached, the nine Columbian pirates scrambled in their speedboat. A more thorough search of the area revealed nothing but a few crowbars.

Local authorities assume it was just a few locals looking to make a few easy dollars.
