A year-long investigation by the Barrington RCMP has resulted in charges laid against a 45-year old man from Shag Harbour for theft and fraud involving $450,000 worth of lobsters.
In May 2010, the Barrington RCMP received a complaint of theft from a lobster holding facility in Shag Harbour, Shelburne County.
The charges involve the Shag Harbour man buying and selling $450,000 worth of lobsters where a New Brunswick fishing company was victimized allegedly during the month of March and April 2010.
The accused, who was not named by police, has been charged with fraud over $5000 and will appear in Barrington Provincial Court on July 14 at 9:30 a.m.
