A Florida man was arrested after stealing 85 pounds of shrimp and other items from a storage facility in the Florida Keys, local authorities say.

Citing the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, local station WFLA reported that the owner of the facility contacted authorities after he noticed that his lock had been broken off.

Deputies arrived at the scene to discover that the bandit got away with 85 pounds of shrimp, a Garmin GPS unit, an air pump, and an unspecified engine part.

After reviewing the security footage, deputies identified the alleged shrimp thief as Felipe Fonseca, 52, of Stock Island.

Fonseca was “found shortly after the theft and booked into jail on charges of burglary, larceny, possession of burglary tools, and damage to property,” the station reported.
