Battle Creek – A 34-year-old woman has been arrested in the theft of $700 worth of crab legs from a southern Michigan store.

Two women were in a Battle Creek store Saturday evening and placed the crab legs in a cart, the Battle Creek Enquirer reported Monday.

One of two children who were with the women was placed in the cart on top of the crab legs and the women left the store, according to police.

One of the women was identified from store surveillance video. Police also were seeking a 27-year-old woman in the theft. One of the women posted photos on social media showing herself in several grocery stores and bragged about having crab legs, police said.

Officers went to a home and while waiting for one of the suspects another woman arrived and said she was there to buy crab legs.

One of the suspects later was arrested in a vehicle used to take the crab legs.
