Serial Shrimp Bandit Pleads Guilty

3 Apr


SALEM, NH – A Massachusetts man has pleaded guilty to being a serial shrimp shoplifter at a New Hampshire supermarket, but hasn’t explained why he couldn’t stay away from the frozen fish.

Forty-six-year-old John Silvera of Methuen pleaded guilty to charges of shoplifting and simple assault in connection with his arrest last month.

Police say he stole about $500 worth of shrimp in four separate trips to the Salem Market Basket.

The Eagle-Tribune reports his plea deal required him to waive extradition so he can answer to another shoplifting charge from Methuen, where he is accused of making off with a jacket full of frozen shrimp at a Market Basket there.

Silvera is expected to spend several months in jail before being sent to Oklahoma to face drug trafficking charges there.
