Police: Woman Stole 14 Live Lobsters From NH Market Basket

ROCHESTER, NH (CBS) – Rochester Police are looking for a crook who apparently fancies fine dining.

They say a woman walked into the Market Basket Friday, headed for the seafood section, and asked the clerk for a sizeable order of live lobsters.

She proceeded to leave the store without paying for them.

In all, the department says that woman made off with 14 lobsters that all weighed a little more than a pound each. The woman’s photo was captured on store surveillance cameras.

Witnesses say she took off in a blue van with a partial license plate of “222.”

Rochester police are asking anyone that may recognize the woman to contact them.
