A case of molestation – DFG Wardens Cite Lobster Stealing Suspect in Dana Point

Editor’s Note: The following is a statement released by the California Department of Fish and Game.

Department of Fish and Game wardens cited a man for allegedly taking lobsters from others’ traps and returned the lobsters, including undersized lobsters, to the sea.
Two wardens on a small boat patrol off Dana Point harbor Saturday night observed a small boat with no lights pulling commercial lobster traps out of the water.

When the wardens approached the 12-foot boat with four men aboard and announced themselves as law enforcement, one man threw a line with a commercial lobster buoy back into the water.
