“LSCO is attempting to locate retail theft suspect. But not just your ‘normal retail theft,” Lee County Sheriff’s deputies wrote.

“We guess you could say THIS one will o-fish-ially catch your eye.”

“The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is aware of an incident at The Bass Pro Shop in Fort Myers involving a tarpon. We are currently working with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office to investigate further,” a spokesperson for the FWC stated.

“I will provide updates when they become available.”
