A fisherman told Sheriff’s deputies someone stole hundreds of pounds of yellowtail from his fishing boat docked at a Stock Island marina overnight between Friday and Saturday.
The victim said he docked his boat at Sea Lobster late Friday and went home for the night, leaving his catch – an estimated 400 pounds of fish - on his vessel. He said a friend of his was sleeping on a smaller vessel tied up to his boat, so he thought it was OK to leave. When he returned at 6 a.m. the following day, his fish were gone. His friend said he didn’t hear anything during the night.
Detectives will be investigating the theft.
