Man accused of poaching 64 lobsters
From staff reports

A Los Angeles man found to be carrying 64 lobsters was arrested on suspicion of poaching along the Palos Verdes Estates coastline, police said Monday.
Vincente Guevara, 29, was arrested Saturday afternoon when someone approached a police officer and said he might want to check on a man in the 1600 block of Paseo del Mar, Palos Verdes Estates police Capt. Mark Velez said.
Guevara told the officer he had 30 lobsters in a bag, but actually there were 64, Velez said. Either way, it is not lobster season.
Guevara was arrested on suspicion of unlawfully taking a lobster, possessing lobster out of season, possessing more than 10 lobsters and possessing undersized lobsters.
