Okay, can anyone explain what's going on in Florida -- for the SECOND time this week, a frozen seafood heist has been reported.

First, there was a brazen tilapia heist in Tampa:

According to police, a suspect described as "Hispanic, 35-40 years old, 5′ 5″ – 5’7”, around 150 to 165 pounds, with a black goatee and wearing glasses" pried open an outdoor freezer at the Buffalo Wings restaurant on East Hillsborough Avenue and made off with 10 boxes of tilapia, shrimp, and halibut.

The modern-day Mr. Blonde "threw the boxes of seafood over the fence to an unknown female suspect who was waiting," cops said.



Now, Fort Walton Beach police say that 40-year-old Joey Kevin Lindsey and 52-year-old Sam Foster Wheat were caught stealing "eight containers of crab fingers and 10 containers of other seafood items" from a cooler at Bay Cafe.

Cops tracked down Lindsey and Wheat, who attempted to bribe an officer with crab meat (seriously, not kidding) before being arrested.
