UPDATE: Fri 10:35 AM, Mar 28, 2014

The case against an 18-year-old man accused of stealing lobsters from a grocery store with his grandma, a Wisconsin Parole officer, has been dismissed.

Donald Kilbury, 18, was originally charged with two counts of theft after prosecutors say he watched as his grandma placed two lobster in her purse. However, those charged were dismissed Thursday in Forest County Circuit Court.

The alleged crime occurred at a grocery store Kilbury previously worked.

According to court documents, surveillance video showed Karen Boodry, 55, take two lobsters out of plastic packaging, place them in her purse, and rearrange the containers to hide the empty packages.
The incident happened on Dec. 4. The lobsters were both valued at around $25.

During questioning, Boodry, 55, said she may have been drinking at the time.

Boodry was charged with two counts of theft. She'll return to court on June 13.
