(CBS/AP/WBZ) ROCHESTER, N.H - Police in Rochester, N.H. are searching for a crook who apparently fancies fine dining.

There's a woman on the loose who may be indulging in a gourmet feast after stealing 14 live lobsters from the seafood section of a grocery store.

Police said that the woman entered the  Market Basket Friday afternoon and asked for the large order of lobsters from a clerk in the seafood department.

Store employees say the woman received the lobsters and then left the store without paying, driving off in a blue van with a partial license plate of "222," reports CBS station WBZ.

Authorities released a surveillance photo Monday that shows the suspect pushing a shopping cart near the front of the grocery store.

Police Capt. Paul Callaghan says the 14 lifted lobsters amounted to about 16 pounds of seafood. No word on whether there have been any thefts of clarified butter and bibs in the area.
