MARATHON, Fla. (AP) — A woman in the Florida Keys is facing charges after deputies say she illegally sold lobster tails through Craigslist.
Twenty-year-old Kasey Marie Platt of Marathon sold 25 fresh lobster tails to an undercover state wildlife officer in a parking lot Monday.
The investigation started when authorities were alerted to an ad on Craigslist offering lobster tails for $10 each.
Officers contacted the poster and arranged to pay $250 for 25 tails.
An undercover officer arrested Platt after meeting her and making the purchase.
Platt has been charged with the unlicensed sale of saltwater products and the possession/sale of lobster out of season, among other charges.
