Female suspects sought in Clearwater lobster theft staff

Pinellas County deputies are seeking the public’s help in locating two women they say are seen on surveillance video stealing lobster tails from a Clearwater seafood market while caring for two young children.

Deputies say the suspects are seen entering Wards Seafood Market & Galley, 1001 Belleair Road, on Wednesday around 1:45 p.m.

The women were seen standing near a tall cooler, police say, before one of the suspects reached in, took multiple lobster tails and placed them in the bottom of a stroller with a baby inside.

The women, baby and a young girl then were seen leaving the store and driving away in a newer-model four-dor maroon sedan.

The first suspect has short black hair. She was last seen wearing a black and white striped dress, carrying a black and white striped bag and pushing a stroller.

The second has a lip pearcing, and was last seen wearing a multi-colored striped dress, balck hair cap and carrying a baby carrier.

Anyone with information is asked to contact (727) 582-6200. To remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward, contact Crime Stoppers toll free at (800) 873-TIPS.
