A 39-year-old Florida man was arrested Saturday after he burglarized several boats at a Stock Island marina and fled from law enforcement.
Cory James Mixon of Key West was charged with burglary, aggravated assault, criminal mischief, and resisting arrest.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and the Key West Police Department responded to Beach Weekend Marina, formerly Murray Marine, at approximately 7 a.m. after an employee discovered a man, later identified as Mixon, aboard a vessel, on top of a rack inside the marina.

Mixon was removing items from vessels and throwing them over the fence into the mangroves.
Investigators say Mixon began throwing dive weights at employees and threatened to kill them while armed with a flare gun and a dive knife.
According to deputies, Mixon jumped off the rack, over the fence, and into the mangroves.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission responded with vessels.
Mixon was found and taken to the Monroe County jail on no bond status. Deputies say more charges are pending.
