NH cops seek woman accused of lifting 14 lobsters

ROCHESTER, NH (AP) — Police in Rochester, NH, would like to get their claws on a woman accused of shoplifting 14 live lobsters.

Authorities released a surveillance photo Monday that shows the woman pushing a shopping cart near the front of the Milton Road Market Basket grocery store.

Police tell the Foster's Daily Democrat that the woman entered the store Friday afternoon and asked for a selection of lobster from the clerk in the seafood department.

Store employees say the woman received the lobsters and then left the store without paying. She left in a blue van with a partial license plate "222."

Police Capt. Paul Callaghan says the 14 lifted lobsters amounted to about 16 pounds of seafood.
