Wanted man arrested after lobster theft
ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - March 5, 2012 (WPVI) -- A wanted Pennsylvania man got himself pinched after police say he stole lobsters from a supermarket then stole a car.
Allentown police say 46-year-old Charles Shumanis dragged his 79-year-old carjacking victim about 50 feet when he swiped the man's car Thursday afternoon.
Investigators say Shumanis dropped the lobsters in the parking lot while being chased by the store's manager then pushed a man out of his car and took off. Police say Shumanis soon crashed and was taken into custody.
Shumanis is being held on $100,000 bail on charges including robbery and aggravated assault. Authorities say he was wanted for walking away from a work-release program.
Police say the store security guard recognized Shumanis as having previously stolen lobsters.
Officials say the carjacking victim was treated for minor injuries.
