#1 Man sentenced for stealing lobsters to support drug habit11-06-2012, 05:38 PMCharles Shumanis III stole lobsters and meat from supermarkets in the Allentown, Pa. area, then carjacked a shopper in the parking lot.
ALLENTOWN, Pa. — A Pennsylvania man could spend up to 25 years in prison for stealing lobsters he planned to sell to support his drug habit.
Authorities say 47-year-old Charles Shumanis III repeatedly stole lobsters and meat from Allentown-area supermarkets, including a botched March 1 theft that included a parking lot car-jacking.
Police say Shumanis stole meat and lobsters on two other occasions before he was confronted when he walked out of the store with $350 in lobsters.
A Lehigh County judge on Monday recommended Shumanis serve time at a state prison able to help him deal with his drug and alcohol problems.
Shumanis pleaded guilty in September to charges including retail theft and robbery of a motor vehicle.

He snapped at the police and became crabby.
