Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Teach a man to steal fish, and he apparently (allegedly) keeps trying to steal fish.

Police in Egg Harbor Township have arrested Kevin Boyle, 29, of EHT, for attempting to leave the English Creek Shoprite without paying for $271.82 worth of seafood. The arrest occurred this past Saturday.

Police say this isn't the first time Boyle has taken seafood without paying.  He was  charged with shoplifting seafood from the same Shoprite on January 17th and January 19th. He was also charged with shoplifting seafood from JR's Market in EHT on January 29th.

Boyle is currently being held in the Atlantic County Jail, in lieu of $8,000 bail.
