    Clearly a case where we should keep our eyes open for red herrings.

    $6,000 worth?!?……..must be the retail price.

    Might be more than one box.   I hope this guy gets caught.

    Just terrible. So much loss for a locally owned, small business. The owners are so nice.

  • Mike June 15, 2018 (7:01 am)

    So are we going to see anything done about this?  Isn’t this a felony theft, since it’s way over the dollar amount stolen to make it a felony?  There’s little to no repercussion for package theft in Seattle.

    Holy mackerel!

  • kathrine June 15, 2018 (7:22 am)

    Hope he is the catch of the day!

    Was $6k worth of fish just left outside? was there a break-in?

  • Lola June 15, 2018 (9:01 am)

    Why would they have a delivery where it is left outside?  I mean If I was a business I would not have something delivered without a person being there to receive it in.  Criminals are just looking for stuff to steal.  I feel for the business.

    Fish from Finland?

  • WSB June 15, 2018 (9:39 am)

    Most if not all of the fish has been recovered. Separate story to come.

    • H June 15, 2018 (9:42 am)

      Carp-e diem!

    • heartless June 15, 2018 (10:03 am)

      Thank cod!

      Waiting with baited breath for the story!

  • Blinkyjoe June 15, 2018 (9:49 am)

    Yet another crime breaking – unrelated – so we have to move on for now.

  • JVP June 15, 2018 (10:48 am)

    Glad they caught the guy.  Love the Fish Company and John’s a good dude with a great crew.

  • FishareFriendsnotfood June 15, 2018 (11:03 am)

    Whale, whale, whale! Slimy Gregory is at it again!Why isn’t this guy in jail with all those guns, drugs and cash. Ohhhh, posted bail. This story really stinks!

  • Lola June 16, 2018 (6:55 am)

    I never did see a clear answer if the boxes were just left outside of the business?  I am assuming they were since they never said the business was broken into?  Just curious if this was the case?

    • WSB June 16, 2018 (8:58 am)

      This happened outside the business. That’s all I know.

  • Brad June 16, 2018 (9:40 am)

    How shellfish of Gregory, this must have made the owner very crabby!

Sorry, comment time is over.
