MARATHON, Fla. -- A woman in the Florida Keys is facing charges after deputies say she illegally sold lobster tails through Craigslist.

Twenty-year-old Kasey Marie Platt of Marathon sold 25 fresh lobster tails to an undercover state wildlife officer in a parking lot Monday.

The investigation started when authorities were alerted to an ad on Craigslist offering lobster tails for $10 each.

Officers contacted the poster and arranged to pay $250 for 25 tails.

An undercover officer arrested Platt after meeting her and making the purchase.

Platt has been charged with the unlicensed sale of saltwater products and the possession/sale of lobster out of season, among other charges.
