The city of Philadelphia held their first ever “Rocky Day” on Sunday and Sylvester Stallone…
Philadelphia authorities were left stunned by a brazen theft of $73k worth of crab legs from a tractor-trailer. The thieves took over five thousand pounds of the product, making off like bandits in the process with no trace to speak of.
Fox 29 reported 184 cases of crab legs were stolen while the driver slept in the front seat:

Finally, someone is stealing something cool in this city. Looting liquor stores and pilfering Apple products is quite literally the lamest way to break the law, and it’s pretty much all we’ve been seeing these days in terms of theft.
What we’ve got here is a quality heist. This is like something Christopher Moltisanti and his meth-smoking buddy would do to prove to the family they’re ready to be made guys. The only difference is that this one seemed to go off without a hitch.
Jameis Winston wishes he could pull off a haul like that. Sorry, couldn’t help myself.
At any rate, whoever knocked over that truck has a shitload of crab legs to either eat, sell, or both. If they play their cards right, they can make a killing as crab people.
Fortunately for them, these are high-quality items, not Delaware River crabs soaked in sewage. These babies are recession-proof. Don’t believe me? It’s been done before:
Live and die by the crab, baby. People gotta eat!
