He’s in some real hot water.
A Boston man hijacked a van loaded with $10,000 worth of lobster bound for Europe — only be foiled by workers in a second vehicle who chased him down.
Employees at Buy New England Lobsters in Charlestown were loading the truck around 12.38 a.m. when the 29-year-old man jumped into the cabin and sped off, the Boston Police Department said.
Instead of floundering, workers at the Boston-based company gave chase in a second lobster truck and caught up with the man several blocks away, cops said.
The brazen shellfish thief then deliberately slammed his stolen vehicle into the second truck.
Quick-thinking employees risked getting battered and detained the man until police arrived.
“It’s probably the most Boston thing that’s ever happened,” Peter Lagorio, the company’s sales and marketing manager, told Boston Magazine.
“It was a very Boston experience for everyone involved,” he continued.
The man was identified by the Suffolk District Attorney’s Office as Stephen Woodard and was arraigned in Charlestown District Court.
Woodard was charged with receiving a stolen motor vehicle, operating after revocation, assault and battery and threats to commit harm.
This is not the first time Woodard has hijacked a vehicle. in 2010, he jumped out of a prisoner transportation van before stealing a Boston Public Works truck and leading police on a three-day manhunt.
