According to a press release from the Maine Department of Marine Resources, the man accused of kidnapping a woman off a Rockland street in September and leading police on a chase through downtown has now been charged with one count of class D theft and one count of class C theft for allegedly stealing lobsters from a dealer in Harpswell days before the alleged kidnapping incident took place.

The Marine Patrol charged Shane Hall, 29, of Portland, and Troy J. Woodman, 34, of Warren, after what it said was a month-long investigation into the theft of 19 crates of lobster, valued at $9,000, from Maggie's Seafood in South Bristol and Quahog Lobster in Harpswell.

Woodman has been charged with one count of class C theft for allegedly stealing from Quahog Lobster on Sept. 17, but DMR said in the release that more charges were expected for alleged thefts on Sept. 24, 25, 27, and Oct. 6 from Maggie's Seafood. He was arrested Oct. 17 and taken to Cumberland County Jail.

Hall is accused of stealing from Quahog Lobster Sept. 25 and 27. He is already in Knox County Jail, held on $250,000 cash bail and facing charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault, criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, eluding an officer, refusing to submit to arrest, and driving to endanger for allegedly attempting to kidnap a woman on her way home from work on the night of Sept. 28. Hall was arrested after that incident when the car he was driving crashed after a police chase.
