An Atlantic City man was sentenced to four years in prison for stealing 91 lobster tails from a casino in February.

Anthony Jones admitted he took the frozen lobsters from Bally's Atlantic City and tried to sneak them out in his jacket and backpack. But a security guard monitoring a surveillance camera noticed his clothes were unusually bulky, and stopped him.

He pleaded guilty to burglary.

The lobsters, worth $1,275, were destroyed.
