A man's boat was stolen from his home, even though the gas lines weren't attached.

The man said he came home from work on Thursday and realized his 16-foot fishing boat was missing. He said the boat wasn't used recently because of all the algae in the water and he keeps the gas line inside of his home. 

It is believed the suspect either paddled the boat away or quietly towed it from the dock. 

A neighbor told Fox 4 News, that he put his boat inside out of fear he would be next. 

Lee County Sheriff's department is investigating the theft.
