BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Owners at Desporte Seafood in Biloxi say their seafood must be so good that someone decided to take off with their delivery van.

Sean Desporte told WLOX News one of its delivery vans full of seafood was stolen Friday. A surveillance camera captured the entire crime on video.

Desporte said the driver was delivering food to Mary Mahoney's Restaurant around 11:30am. While the driver was away from the van, Desporte said a woman hopped in and drove away with thousands of dollars worth of seafood.

Biloxi Police tell WLOX News the delivery truck was found just minutes after it was reported stolen. The driver was taken into custody.

Desporte told us they got the van back Friday afternoon, and everything was left unharmed.
