A woman is facing charges after being caught red-handed with a stolen lobster in Prince George's County.

Officers from the Laurel Police Department were called to the Red Lobster in the 14300 block of Baltimore Avenue for a swiped shellfish. 

Officers flound the woman and rescued the lobster from the trunk of her car. Police say she planned to have her own Lobsterfest later on.

The woman was arrested and issued a criminal citation. 

The lobster was safely returned to its tank.
