Illegal crab sales charges for 3 in Md.

By The Associated Press

Three Maryland men have been charged with selling crabs without a license.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources Police announced the charges Wednesday against the Eastern Shore men for selling crabs harvested between June and September.

Natural Resources Police say Stephen Mark Mullikin of Cambridge, Wesley Matthew Finneyfrock, of St. Michaels, and William Christopher Bradley, also of St. Michaels, face multiple counts of selling crabs without a license and illegal possession of female crabs.

Finneyfrock and Bradley are also charged with possession of undersize hard crabs.

A Jan. 20 trial date was scheduled for Mullikin. Trials for Finneyfrock and Bradley are scheduled Feb. 17.

All three will be tried in Talbot County District Court.

Have these crabs been frozen and kept for evidence? If so, I volunteer to taste the evidence. One needs to make sure they are actually crabs and not crayfish disguised as crabs. I wonder if crustations celebrate Halloween.
