Got a question for Courtney's Mom?
Outside of Gulf Shrimp in Southington sits a 5-and-a-half foot tall lobster statue. It’s become the restaurant’s trademark.
A customer noticed the missing crustacean and told an employee who assumed the owner had taken the big guy home to be painted. When the owner, Camille Simoneaux, found out the lobster was missing she called the police. Surprisingly, the police took the call for a missing 5-foot lobster seriously and have begun investigating.
Stealing the lobster is probably not the easiest task since the thing is made entirely out of fiberglass and weighs 150 pounds. Even though a missing lobster may seem trivial, it’s estimated to cost around $2,000. The sales manager of Gulf Shrimp pleads for its safe return saying, “It’s our landmark. People would know they could get fresh seafood and lobster here. We were attached to our lobster and we would like him back. It looks bare to me. we want our lobster back.”
