    Homeless man jailed in College Station lobster theft

    Eagle Staff Report


    A 28-year-old homeless man remained jailed Sunday after Red Lobster employees said he walked into the College Station eatery a day earlier and pulled a live 3-pound lobster out of its tank.

    When police caught up to the man later, he said he had left the crustacean with the restaurant's competitor, College Station Seafood, according to court documents. A short time later, the animal was recovered from the restaurant, police reported.

    The man was detained by police in the bathroom of a Texas Avenue office building after a Red Lobster employee followed him there and reported his whereabouts to police, documents state.

    He was charged with theft between $50 and $500, a Class B misdemeanor. Bond was posted at $2,000 for the man, who has been arrested numerous times during the past year for minor offenses.

    Probably someone with mental health issues.

    Years ago in the 1990s when I worked loss prevention, some crazy lady grabbed an entire fixture of earrings and walked out the store w/ it. No employee was smart enough to comment anything to the lady. They just let her do it, then waited 5 minutes to call me... Geeze...

    Anyway, once I got involved and contacted the police after I saw her way down the street, the police caught her at a nearby park. She was on a bridge over a pond in that park, and was about to throw the whole thing into the pond. I added it up later - the whole thing had over $900 in earrings in it.

    Why would she do that? Who knows. She was crazy. When they had her in the back of the police car, cuffed, and back at the store, she acted really bizarre. Lady was crazy...

    Probably something similiar here...
