Is that a lobster in your pants or are you just happy to sea me?

Poachers apparently go through great lengths to smuggle the delicious ocean creatures out of the La Jolla State Marine Conservation Area, in San Diego.

One local man was recently busted trying to steal six lobsters by stuffing them down his pants.

Department of Fish and Game warden Daryl Simmons said wardens arrested Binh Quang Chau, 36, when they noticed "odd bulges" in his pants.

All six of the newspaper-wrapped lobsters were still alive and were returned to the ocean.

Lucky for Chau, San Diego lobsters do not have pincers.

Chau did not have any crabs.
