A Sheriff’s Marine Patrol deputy, working with Fish and Wildlife officers, arrested two men with a large number of wrung tails, most of which were also illegal size.
Deputy Wilfredo Guerra spotted a vessel just after 4 a.m. Sunday approaching shore at the north end of Marathon with no running lights. He saw two men get off the vessel carrying a large grey box.
Deputy Guerra approached 41 year old Ernesto Rua Pinera of Homestead and 26 year old Raudel Rubio of Marathon and asked to check inside the box. He found 332 wrung lobster tails. 304 of the tails turned out to be undersized.
Both men were arrested. They were charged with possessing 332 wrung tails and 304 undersized tails. They were booked into jail. The lobster tails were turned over to FWC to be kept in their evidence facility.
