Crab-Leg Bandit Headed To Jail

Woman guilty of assault for trying to run over store worker

WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) – A Maryland woman has been convicted of assault in a grocery store theft in which she nearly ran over an employee with her car.

The Carroll County State’s Attorney’s Office says 27-year-old Shana Frundt was sentenced Friday to six years in jail for first-degree assault, with all but 18 months suspended.

News outlets report she was known as the “crab leg bandit.” Frundt took over $200 worth of food from a grocery store last year. She noticed an employee taking pictures and nearly hit him with her car.

Her attorney called the sentence excessive because the employee wasn’t hurt.
