STOCK ISLAND, Florida (AP) -- Authorities say a man stole a small motorboat from a marina in the Florida Keys, then fled with it to Cuba.

Monroe County Sheriff's spokeswoman Becky Herrin said Tuesday that 38-year-old Shawn Michael Luskey is accused of taking the 13-foot (4-meter) Boston Whaler from a Stock Island marina on Oct. 31.

Surveillance video showed a man in a wet suit at the marina before the boat leaves its slip.

Herrin says the U.S. Coast Guard contacted Det. Shiela Seago on Nov. 2 after getting a message from the Cuban Border Guard regarding a boater entering Havana Harbor. Photos of the vessel from Cuban authorities match the boat and show Luskey in full wet suit.

The sheriff's office has a grand theft warrant for Luskey once he's returned to the United States.
