It must be challenging to figure out how much someone stole from you when they take something that costs “MARKET PRICE.”
There’s a guy named Matthew Bellerose from Scarborough, Maine, and he owned 20% of a company called Sea Salt. And like all companies in Maine, they sold lobsters.
Well . . . it turns out that Matthew was secretly STEALING lobsters. He set up a fake client and pretended he was shipping there, but really, he was pocketing the lobsters to sell. Apparently there’s a LOBSTER BLACK MARKET. Who knew?
Anyway, he embezzled approximately $1.5 million worth of lobsters before the other owners caught him.
So now, there’s a criminal investigation going on, and they just filed a lawsuit against him.
