That's one shellfish person.

A Florida woman is in hot water after allegedly shoplifting seven lobster tails by hiding them in her pants.

Police in DeLand arrested Nichole Ann Reed, 30, on Thursday after a security guard said he saw Reed leave the market without paying for the delicious crustaceans, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

The lobster tails were valued at $11.99 each.

Reed allegedly told police she planned to trade the tails with a friend for either a Chinese buffet meal or the prescription drug Dilaudid, according to ClickOrlando.com.

Reed was charged with petty theft and taken to the Volusia County Branch Jail.

She has been previously arrested several times for disorderly conduct, domestic battery and battery causing bodily harm, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

She was released after posting $250 bail, the Associated Press reports.
