LUTCHER, La. (AP) - St. James Parish sheriff's deputies have arrested a 24-year-old Lutcher man accused of stealing 166 pounds of crawfish from a seafood store.
The Advocate reports Anthony Chauvin was booked Friday with single counts of theft of crawfish and criminal damage to property.
Deputies say the mudbugs were reported missing at 5:15 a.m. Friday from an outside walk-in cooler that had been locked at Miko's Seafood.
Maj. Sid Berthelot said Monday someone cut a padlock to the cooler, and crawfish valued at more than $500 were taken.
He says no crawfish were recovered from the theft.
It could not be determined if Chauvin has an attorney.
