Shoplifter hid shrimp in his pants

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Police are searching for a man who was caught on surveillance video trying to steal frozen shrimp by hiding them in his pants.

It happened around noon Friday at the Dollar General on South Slappey Blvd.

According to a report, a store employee saw a man putting bags of shrimp inside his waistband.

The manager confronted the man, and said she heard a "crunch" from his waistband when stopped.

The suspect eventually gave up five bags of Sea Best frozen shrimp that were tucked inside his pants.

The manager went to call 911, and that's when the suspect ran away from the store.

Police are searching for a black man, described as 5'9" tall and about 150 pounds, wearing a yellow, white, and blue plaid shirt with a white undershirt.

Anyone with information is asked to call Albany Police or CrimeSTOPPERS at 229-446-9252.
