Police: Man tried to return lobster shell
Authorities in New York state said they have arrested a man who allegedly stole crab legs from a store where he tried to return an empty lobster shell.
Montgomery County sheriff's deputies said Walter Tessier told employees at the Price Chopper store in Amsterdam that he wanted to return a $10.99 lobster because
it was bad, the Albany (N.Y.) Times Union reported Wednesday.
They said Tessier was arrested at his home but he allegedly had already eaten the pilfered crab legs. He was charged with petit larceny and given a court appearance ticket.
