A man who spent all day on shore came back to his docked boat in Biloxi and found someone in his cabin eating his food and wearing his clothes, Biloxi police said.

Investigator Matthew DeDual said police responded to the 600 block of Beach Boulevard about 6 p.m. Tuesday on a report of burglary of a vessel.

The boat owner said he’d returned found another man aboard his boat, helping himself to food and beverages, DeDual said.

The owner confronted the man, who ran away after a brief altercation, DeDual said.

Officers found David Randall Eubanks, 57, a little later, and he was wearing a T-shirt that belonged to the boat owner. The shirt was gray and had “The Coast” written across the front it.

Eubanks was arrested on a burglary of a water vessel charge, and he’s held at the Harrison County jail. Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain set his bond at $50,000.
