Agents with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries cited a Covington man last week for allegedly harvesting crabs from traps on Lake Pontchartrain that did not belong to him.

According to a news release, Connor P. Green, 28, was ticketed for a crabbing violation after agents allegedly observed Green harvesting crabs from a series of traps. When they initiated a compliance check, the agents discovered none of the traps harvested belonged to Green.

Agents seized four and a half boxes of live blue crabs and returned them to the water, according to the release.

Regulations state that no person other than the licensee or his agent shall remove the contents of a crab trap. Theft from crab traps brings a $400 to $950 fine and up to 120 days in jail, the release states.

Glad they caught him, hope he gets a heavy fine and maybe some time if he's a repeat offender. In MD, a slap on the wrist, most times for 1st time offenders. . Downside is the person that owned those traps lost quite a few crabs, SMH.
