Classy Casablanca Robber Stole Lobster Tails, Salmon Fillets, and Grouper Steaks
They followed the smell to the roof, where they found more rotting seafood.
The marisco mystery was solved, however, when the thief caught was on camera. Apparently Angel Alberto Conde has expensive taste.
When police arrested him at his home Sunday morning, they found $2,000-worth of Casablanca's lobster tails, salmon fillets, grouper steaks, crab, shrimp, and even ceviche stashed in this refrigerator.
"He took whatever he wanted," Casablanca manager Maribel Sanchez says. "He really went shopping."
Police say the diminutive (5'4" 130 lbs.) Conde climbed onto the restaurant's roof and entered through the rear stairs. Then he made his way to the market where he allegedly used a screwdriver to pry open the cash register. After taking two grand, he turned his attention to the seafood.
But his eyes were bigger than his
According to police, Conde confessed to the crime after his arrest.
