He should have gone to the all-you-can-eat buffet.
A New Jersey man was pinched for stealing 91 lobsters from an Atlantic City casino - and its going to cost him four years in jail.
Anthony Jones, 38, was sentenced Friday for stealing the ocean treats from the kitchen at Bally's Atlantic City.
Jones stuffed the lobsters in his shirt and backpack and tried to walk out casually.
A security guard noticed something wasn't kosher and stopped Jones. The guard testified that Jones' clothing "was very bulky and he appeared to be concealing items."
The crustacean burglar was arrested and "he and the lobsters were escorted to the security holding facility to await the arrival of the police," the police report says.
Jones pleaded guilty to lifting $1,275 worth of seafood.
"The lobster was destroyed," Bally's spokeswoman Alyce Parker told the Press of Atlantic City, adding that the casino did not seek restitution for the food.
Bally's Atlantic City runs an all-you-can-eat promotion called "Seafood Saturdays," where diners can "enjoy all your favorite seafood dishes in one place, for one low price" - of $25.99 a person.
