Police: DeLand woman steals lobster tails by shoving them in pants


DELAND, Fla. - A woman bonded out of jail Thursday after investigators said she stole frozen lobster tails by hiding them in her pants.

Nichole Reed, 30, was caught allegedly stuffing the lobster tails in her pants at the Publix on South Woodland Boulevard in DeLand.

Police arrested Reed, who told them she planned to trade the seafood for Chinese buffet or the prescription pain medication Dilaudid.

She posted $250 bail. It wasn't clear whether she'd obtained a lawyer.
