D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - D'Iberville Police arrested a man at Winn Dixie Tuesday who they say was trying to leave the store with two lobster tails in his shorts, among other meat products.

Nathan Hardy, 35, is accused of shoplifting. Store employees said he tried to walk out of the grocery store without paying for items that he had stuffed into his pockets. Those items included two lobster tails in his front pockets, two bags of jumbo shrimp, and a pork loin, which was stuffed into his waist band.

Police originally reported that the lobsters were whole, live lobsters.

When officers arrived at the store, they said Hardy tried to run, but fell. He was arrested and was taken to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center.
