A man named Gary Lee Rogers, 47, recently did the unthinkable after he stole frozen fish worth $1, 400 and stuffed them under his pants to avoid being caught.
The owner of one Westville Seafood located at 1514 Whalley Avenue, in United states had earlier on Thursday, January 15, 2015 called the police and complained that he could not find a large number of his fish.
They waded into investigation by first reviewing the footage from the security camera which incidentally revealed the culprit carting away with the fish.
They traced him to his motel room after reviewing a surveillance video from a neighboring store which showed the direction he took after he stole the fish.
On getting to his room, the officers were ushered in by a woman where they saw Rogers wearing a jacket that was seen in the video.
According to World Wide Weird News, a backpack that the suspect had been using during the robbery was also in the room. Rogers was not wearing pants, and when his companion went to retrieve a pair, frozen fish fell to the ground.
Rogers was arrested by the police in New Haven Connecticut, after the fish was recovered from his motel room on Thursday, January 15, 2015.
He was charged with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree burglary and second degree criminal mischief.
