Police find owner of lost lobster

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, Jan. 3 (UPI) -- Police in Nova Scotia said they have reunited a woman with a suitcase full of lobster and gifts discovered by a bus driver.

Halifax Regional Police said a Metro Transit bus driver discovered the black suitcase around 11 a.m. Dec. 31 and turned it over to police, who put out a notice seeking the owner of the frozen lobster, Nintendo Wii, clothing and gifts found inside the bag, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Thursday.

"Are you missing a suitcase full of lobster and gifts?" Halifax Regional Police said in release. "Officers were unable to find any identification to determine the rightful owner."

Krista Nash, sister-in-law of the suitcase's owner, said an unidentified woman saw both an online posting seeking the missing suitcase and the police notice. The woman contacted Nash.

"I didn't even get her name, I was so excited," Nash said Wednesday. "Her phone number didn't show up on the phone so I couldn't even call back but very thankful that she was able to put two and two together and give me a call."

Stacey Nash, the sister-in-law who was visiting Nova Scotia from Toronto, said the suitcase must have fallen from the family's pickup truck when her husband left the tailgate down.

Constable Pierre Bourdages, a spokesman for Halifax Regional Police, said the lobsters were kept frozen during the search for the owner.
