Wisconsin parole officer, grandson charged with stealing lobster

CRANDON, WI (WTAQ) - A state probation and parole officer and her grandson are both free on $200 bonds, after they allegedly stole lobster from a Crandon grocery store.  

55-year-old Karen Boodry and 18-year-old Donald Kilbury are both charged in Forest County with two counts of misdemeanor theft. Both are from rural Crandon.  

The incident occurred at Schaefer's Food Mart. According to prosecutors, the meat department manager found an empty lobster box -- and security personnel then watched the store's video which showed Boodry slipping a lobster into her purse. Kilbury was with her at the time.  

Media reports said a store employee recognized Kilbury because he used to work there -- and Boodry did not remember what happened because she had been drinking.  

New court dates have not been set in the case. State corrections' officials have not commented about Boodry's job status.
