A Florida woman was arrested this week for shoving seven lobster tails down her pants at a grocery store.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Nichole Reed, 30, was caught stuffing the lobster tails into her pants at a Deland, Fla. Publix. A security guard who witnessed this told police that Reed then proceeded to exit without paying.
The Orange City native was apprehended shortly after and, according to a police report, explained that she ventured to the store with "the intent to steal," adding that she planned to trade the lobster tails with a friend, then possibly purchase Chinese food. Or painkillers.
Reed was charged with theft from a merchant in yet another barter system failure out of Florida.
