Spiny Florida Lobsters Get More Protection than Our Elders Do

Cudjoe Key,Florida USA BY TIMOTHY O'HARA of Key West Citizen

Federal agents confiscated three boats and three vehicles and say they plan to seize three homes owned by a Cudjoe Key commercial lobster diver accused of lobster poaching in the Keys.

David Dreifort, 41, was arrested Wednesday and a federal judge granted him a $50,000 bond on Thursday. Judge Lurana Snow also said Dreifort could not sell or mortgage his two homes in the Keys and one in Sebastian Inlet, as federal officials plan to seize them, if they can prove they were acquired by profits made.
