Cape Oyster Farmers Seek Punishment Over Stolen Goods
July 12, 2014
CapeCodOnline.com: Victims of last summer’s oyster thefts that cost local shellfish farmers thousands in lost business and damaged equipment want a Sandwich [Massachusetts] business owner who accepted the stolen goods to lose his permits to sell fish.
And some are outraged that Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe wrote a letter that they say appears to advocate for the perpetrator rather than his victims.
Reaction to a story in the Sunday Cape Cod Times about Joseph Vaudo’s push to save his licenses to sell seafood at Joe’s Lobster Mart in Sandwich was swift and strong.
