This crab poacher just can’t stay away from the sea.
A serial crab poacher’s laundry list of violations is so bad, he was banned from fishing for life.
But now ABC news reports Essex, Maryland resident Thomas William Pannebaker, 45, has been caught illegally crabbing….again.
When Pannebaker was banned, it was when he was caught on 10 different violations. His list of past violations includes crabbing with illegal pots, wearing night vision goggles, crabbing without a license, crabbing in restricted areas and crabbing on days when it wasn’t allowed.
Man, talk about a guy that just can’t stop crabbing!
It’s likely his past record won’t help Pannebaker any when he appears in Calvert County District Court in mid-July. This time, he could be facing up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $25,000.
