Miami police are on the hunt for some small time bandits who made a big time catch.

Some 71,000 pounds of lobster worth over $1 million were fished out of the freezers of Carlos Seafood over the weekend by a group of burglars.

Surveillance video captured two women trying to sell the stolen lobster tails at a Hialeah seafood restaurant, but the owner quickly realized the tails were stolen.

Police are seeking any info the public can give on the crustacean-grabbing crooks.
