Authorities are searching for a suspect after troopers say he stole seafood from a business in Delaware.

Delaware State Police say on Wednesday, around 8:10 PM, a theft happened when the suspect in the photo entered into a walk-in freezer at the back of JD Shuckers restaurant located at 20750 John J.

She later apparently  came across the suspect walking in to the freezer, while reviewing video surveillance cameras.

According to the report, the suspect is seen walking out of the freezer carrying a 5 lb. bag of shrimp approximately two minutes after walking into the freezer.

Anyone with information related to the identity of the pictured suspect is asked to call the Cpl/2 J. Serratore of Troop 7 at 302-644-5020 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-847-3333.
