Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Could you please explain your situation a little more?Ash
Yes technically this could be theft. Once the lobsters are in the pots then this could be considered theft.
This is where there is appropriation of property belong to another (lobsters) with a dishonest intention to permanently deprive the owner. This is theft.
So yes, someone could be prosecuted.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
